In this scenario your car is a shelter, utilize it to protect yourself from the cold elements.
Candles – If you have never tried burning a candle in a small area, you should try it. Beyond these basics to help you stay warm, there can also be a few small auto repair items that will help you to make quick fixes to your car.
Snow can plug your vehicle’s exhaust system and cause deadly carbon monoxide gas to enter your car. Kitty Litter is perfect for throwing under your tires if you are stuck in snow or on ice, it will give you traction. Avoid Overexertion: Shoveling snow or pushing your car takes a lot of effort in storm conditions.


Although we are having a very mild Winter here in Indiana, there have been times we had over 2 foot of snow at once. If you are lucky enough to live somewhere that doesn’t get snow, many of these items are great to have in your car.
Even though I no longer live in the NW Suburbs of Chicago or in the Ozarks this sounds like a wonderful idea as we still sometimes get snow and ice in the plains of Texas in the winter time. After reading many Winter Kit suggestions, I noticed that there are some things missing, and some things I wouldn’t do. Have a couple of candles, (or make your own in a old cough candy tin) You can also have a soup tin inside the coffee tin to hold the candle. I take old pill bottles and fill them with cotton balls or make-up remover pads that have been dipped in melted candle wax.


The winter season is nearly upon us and Richland County Emergency Management is encouraging everyone to prepare a Winter Survival Kit for their car. Snow can plug your vehicle's exhaust system and cause deadly carbon monoxide gas to enter your car.
