Sometimes it happens that you can get caught in a snowstorm with no options. The news today was saying that Dallas has more snow this year than Chicago. Go figure. There are a lot of tricks that most people do not consider when driving on snow. Like when coming to an intersection, putting an automatic in neutral. I always carry a kit during cold weather. A couple of fleece sleeping bags will fit nicely behind the seat. A tow strap should be part of any car, year round, like jumper cables.
