Get your car ready for winter snowstorm and extreme cold

Staying safe, and ready, this winter is something that we just can't stress enough.

We hit this very topic every year around this time. Just in case that 'unexpected' situation arises, there are some things you don't want to leave home without.

This weekend, we aren't just forecasting snow but dangerous cold. That being said, staying warm is your first priority.

Have an extra coat, a wool blanket, gloves, hat, a pair of boots and wool socks. Pack a flashlight, case of water bottles, granola bars or other food for you and maybe your pet.

Other must-haves for winter driving include a shovel, window scraper and a first-aid kit.

Don't leave without your cell phone and a car charger. Last but not least, a full tank of gas.
