“Stay in the pathways that are kind of plowed out because if you get in that slush or snow, there’s a good chance that you're going to get pulled into the ditch. Drive slow, wear your seat belt, following distance. Give yourself plenty of time,” Sgt. Steve Swenson said.

Some of the things you can keep in your car's survival kit include water, snacks, a blanket, and some warm clothing like gloves.
