Kitty litter is actually not good for traction, it mixes with the melting snow and makes it more slick. The salt and pea gavel are great ideas though.
If you are going to spend the night in your vehicle in a blizzard, you are going to want to start the night with at least a half tank of gas. It gets cold pretty darn quickly, so next you will want extra clothing and blankets. The mylar emergency blankets are great, but fleese is soooo comfortable. Wool or fleese hats and scarfs make such a difference, be sure to include them in your car. <br> <br>Dress as though you are going to have to walk in the snow, and take the layers off when you get into the car. Boots, gortex coat, hat, gloves, etc. <br> <br>Be sure that you have not only your phone, but a cigar lighter recharger for it. <br> <br>If you are stuck long enough, you may need to urinate. How will you handle that?
Good idea,when I was living up north I always kept a winter kit in my vehicles. I carry a Hurricane bug out bag now.
yes like no phone no charger 4 the phone no little radio no flash light... this is incomplete
