Sub-zero cold returns to Minnesota this week. If you need to travel, Carrie Carlson-Guest with the American Red Cross says to be sure to pack a winter survival kit:
“Have things like an extra blanket or one of those emergency mylar blankets. Extra hats, gloves, scarves. Your ice scraper, snow brush, cell phone charger, protein bars things like that. Also that sand and cat litter.”
Carlson-Guest recommends putting your winter survival kit in the back seat where it can be easily accessible.
