Getting Ready For Winter
With the frigid part of the year now creeping into most of the country, an article by Abby Dyer is a good reminder of the need to be ready for cold weather emergencies.

A weeks worth of food, water and other basic necessities will put you in a good position to ride things out comfortably. Heavy snows can close roads in just a few hours, so you should have a kit of basic supplies in the trunk of your car, as well.
