For once I listened. In late October I asked experts for suggestions about what to carry in my car for winter weather. Maybe I over did it, but if you looked in my car this morning, you would have found: de-icer, a short-handle shovel, bottled water, a blanket my wife put in before I left, cat litter and since I live more than 20 miles away I threw in an overnight bag with a change of clothes in case I need to stay in town or get sent out. Plus, I appreciate the thermos of coffee my wife made and I made sure my phone was charged up. I left home a little after 6:30 a.m. and it did take a little less than an hour, but thankfully it was uneventful. I may not need any of the above items, but I feel a little better “just in case.”
Have a safe day if you have to get out.
