Winter is settled in and it is important to stay warm when going outside. Temperatures below zero at night and bone chilling temps during the day can be hazardous. Check on elderly neighbors, and bring pets inside. Traveling means having certain items also. At any time there can be a slide off on these icy roads and help may not get to you fast enough, so preparing the car is important also. You might also have to wait in your car because there is an incident on the road ahead of you. Make sure you can stay warm and have food and water.
