It's winter and what can be more important than staying warm and well, in and out of our homes?
It's always safe to have a survival kit in your car because you just never know! I remember the Blizzard of 1978 in Boston, it took us all by storm. I was lucky enough to get home but my roommate was not. People were stuck at work, school, and worst of all, stuck on the highways. Stuck in cold cars with no heat, no food and no where to go.
Chances are we won't have another Blizzard of 1978, but anyone can break down in a storm or in the cold, just anywhere.
Everyone should carry a Winter Survival Kit in their car. In an emergency, it could save your life and the lives of your passengers. Don't overlook the little things on our list like activities to keep everyone calm!
Here is what you need to make a DIY Car Survival Kit:

- Windshield scraper
