Our local T.V. channel has been showing some commercials on making sure your prepared for the cold weather that is on it's way. So I took a look in our car. Being married to a mechanic is nice in the sense that we are pretty prepared in the mechanics side. Some things that you should make sure to have are...
Tools, I have a slew of different ones in my little red tool box.
Water in a Cooler It is said, that if your water is in the cooler in your car it will not freeze.
Jumper Cables The cold weather can cause a draw on your battery, so have a pair in-case you need to be jumped.
Flash Light - with batteries that work.
Extra Gloves As I was looking in the car I was blown away with how prepared we are in the extra gloves category.
