When Snow Storms Shut Down the Roads

2/4/2022 (Permalink)

Many San Gabriel Valley residents often like to retreat to the mountains for some winter snow fun! Gloves, jackets, snow sleds are likely on the list to pack for a weekend of leisure. However, if we can learn anything from the 24-hour traffic jam back east last month, it is to be prepared in case of an emergency snow storm stop on the road.

In addtion to your snow gear and snow toys, it is important to have emergency supplies in your vehicle.

Here is a simple list to consider:

  • Flashlights with extra batteries
  • Consider a re-chargeable battery pack for your car (one that has compatible jumper cables and/or jumpe cables
  • Non-Perishable snacks
  • First Aid Kit
  • Bottled Water
  • Spare tire and jack
  • Blankets
  • Antifreeze and Oil

Pro Tip: If ever stuck in a storm, in your vehicle, to help prevent your engine from freezing/freezer temperatures, turn your car over each hour, for ten minutes. Avoid leaving your car running the entire time you might be stuck, to save gasoline.
