Snow in the Forecast, Make Sure These Items Are in Your Car!
Parts of Minnesota could see its first measurable snow this week. Winter is on the horizon and now is a good time to make sure your vehicle is ready for it! Here is a check list of things to keep handy to avoid disaster this coming snowy season.
- Ice Scraper/Snow Brush
- Kitty Litter - Can't get traction on a slippery patch? Keep a bag of kitty litter in the trunk, sprinkle some by the tires when you're in a slick spot, magically unstuck! Yay for traction!
- Emergency snacks
- Case of water
- Spray Bottle of De-Icer - 2 cups of rubbing alcohol, 1 cup of water. Keep it in a spray bottle and use it to get that pesky ice off your windshield in less than 5 seconds!
- Extra hates, mittens, coats.
Driving around with a bunch of extra "junk in the trunk" seems like a hassle, but in Minnesota you just never know when you'll need it. And if and when that time does come, you'll be thankful that it's there!
