September 6, 2017
You may be thinking it is only September, we are just about to hit Fall, and it has been only raining. However, what we may forget at times is we live in Michigan. We can have snow in the middle of summer and get hit with snowstorms in October.
People can prepare for the days they can not get to the store due to the roads by stocking up on some food and other essential supplies. You may have hot chocolate on hand for when you have to shovel/plow or when your children come in from outside. However, are you prepared in the event you break down or need supplies away from home?
Things you should have in your vehicle include:
First Aid Kit
- Ice Scraper
You may be wondering why should we have blankets in the vehicle. If you have a blanket or several, in the event you are left without heat in the winter having blankets will help you stay warm while you are waiting. In addition, when you have children with you, make sure you have what they may need (ex: formula and water- if have infant). You can even have a spare set of clothing.
Don’t forget to have your vehicle inspected to ensure it is safe for the harsh weather that can come at any moment.
