Emergency Winter Kit for the Car
If you live in a cold winter zone, be prepared for any unexpected emergency on the road.
This is something that we all should do regardless of how cold it gets. If you have children, and you all get stuck in the car waiting for AAA to come and rescue you, you need to have an emergency kit available. You may not need this but in reality, better to be over-prepared than not. My recommendation is to have this kit available in the trunk of your car and hope that you will never have to use it, so include at least:
Water, snacks, blankets, hats, gloves, flashlights, batteries, toilette paper, Kleenex, paper towel anything that you may think you will need to survive until help arrives.
This is how life works. The other day I left my car lights on and when I came back the car did not start. I was shocked and when I regain composure, I called AAA. Unfortunately, it was rush hour, there were lots of accidents and people in greater need than mine, so the nice attendant said, lady, be ready to wait for a long time, I was lucky that I did not have any kids with me but think about it. I was on the road, it was dark and cold, I was scared and hungry. Was I expecting that to happen to me? Never, but suddenly, I remember that I had my box filled with goodies, so I went to get some granola snacks, water and a blanket, and then I grabbed my IPhone and waited patiently for help. I was a happy girl! Help finally arrived and it took the guys under 5 minutes to fix my problem. So ironic. Again, you never know when it will be your turn, meantime, get ready now!
