I have this one trick for staying safe in snowstorms and since it is getting terribly bad outside I needed to share...
KEEP A CANDLE IN YOUR CAR.
I know you're thinking..."Why do I need Vanilla Sugar smells to stay safe?"
It is actually pretty simple, a candle with multiple wicks can keep the interior of a car warm incase you are stranded somewhere for many hours. Obviously, keep the basics on hand like a spare blanket, jackets, food, and water. Just make sure to also keep a candle in case you need warmth.
Living in the midwest my entire life I felt deprived when I just learned this trick last year.
