In this chilly month of February, we up here in New England, are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Blizzard of 1978. As one of those who wound up driving
on Route128 ( now known as Interstate 95) that morning, I thought it might be a good time to think about being prepared for such an occurrence in the
future.We hear about people who become stranded in their car during a blizzard or drive off the road due to slippery conditions during a storm.
If you find yourself trapped in your car during a blizzard, it’s important to know what to do. Do you call for help right away? Do you get out of the car? Do you leave the car? What supplies should you have just in case?
Remember that panic leads to ill advised decisions that could become fatal decisions. It is important remain calm and focused on survival until rescue.
