How cold can it go? Some of the coldest weather in decades is icing much of the West and Midwest of the United States over the next few days. Are you prepared for the numbing cold? Emergency officials warn it can be deadly without the proper gear.
Before you head out into the frigid weather, make sure that you have a “go bag” in your vehicle. A go bag has a flashlight blankets, high energy snack bars, water, gloves and hat. Check that you have jump cables, tools and a full spare tire. A bag of kitty litter can provide traction on slippery roads and thoroughfares.
