Winter Survival Kit for the Car for Southerns

While driving to wrestling practice tonight, I looked at my thermometer in my car and it said 36F. That’s cold for 5:30 in NC! Then I got thinking, “Do I have everything I need in my car in case I have an emergency?”. When I was college I had an old boyfriend’s Dad tell me that I should alway bring my coat in the car. Many times I would just jump in and never bring it because I wasn’t planning on being outside. I was just going from building to building. He told me I could have a flat and I would be out of luck. Well, driving back from school one day, I had a flat tire and I didn’t have my coat. I try to be prepared now because I had to call for help. I couldn’t change it myself because it was freezing out.
Doesn’t that photo look beautiful? I normally don’t drive in bad weather, but you never know what’ going to happen. Now that I have kids, I try to be prepared and I’m going to give you my list of things I keep in my car in the winter.
- flashlights and extra batteries- We have these and love them.
- protein bars and other snacks
- jumper cables
- ice scrapper
- first aid kit
- extra phone charger
- a REAL map
Remember- We don’t really get snow here so I’m not traveling with a shovels and gravel! 🙂 If you live in an area with snow, you will need additional supplies!!!
Do you keep anything different in your car in the winter? Am I leaving out something important?
