Roy Kelley - this is a good idea and it would make an easy and practical house warming gift from Selling Agents who sell this Fall & Winter.

I have most of those items in my car.  Another thing to consider is carrying chains.  They can be expensive if you find yourself in need of them, but without them, in a place where prices are jacked up.

They also make very small emergency chain kits - they're cheap and should provide just enough grip if there's a real emergency.

Good morning, Roy... your post reminded me how little I do to prepare for winter vis-a-vis my car. I did used to when I lived in New York. Here in Charlotte, not so much.

Hi Roy,
I was just looking at my car emergency kit yesterday. I need to add a few things as winter approaches.
