A hard lesson in life is that no matter how we prepare, sometimes, we face situations where things happen and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it.

When we think about colder months dropping surprises on us our minds often turn to our vehicles. Even if your vehicle is new, the frigid temperatures, and winding roads of Connecticut can present a danger.

Most of these will be instantly obvious as to why they are important but others might leave some scratching their heads.

Trust us, you’ll be thankful for that box of power bars and blanket when the Tow Truck Driver tells you it’ll be a 3 hour wait due to inclement weather conditions. A weather radio will be vital in letting you know if you should hunker down in your car to wait or if it’s safe to make an on-foot dash for the corner store you passed a mile back.

Wind shield or window broken? Go ahead and patch it up with the cardboard and duct tape whilst you wait for help.

We want to hear from you- what are some things that have happened to you when driving in a storm? Do you keep anything else in your car to be safe?
