7 Things You Should Keep in Your Car

People who were stuck stranded on Interstate Highways for a day or more say these are the things they wish they had with them:

1.   Water bottles, gallons of them

2.   Non-perishable high energy foods (nuts, granola, sardines, beef jerky, power bars, etc.)

3.   Battery-powered flashlight (with extra batteries) and a car phone charger

4.   Jumper cables (if your car battery dies)

5.   Ice scraper (to clear the windows before the traffic gets moving again)

6.   Personal hygiene products

7.   Blankets and warm clothing, like extra socks, hats, hand warmers-also a candle and matches to provide heat if gas is low
