Driving in winter conditions on snowy and icy roads is serious business and it should not be taken lightly.
As Clint Eastwood once said, “A man has got to know his limitations”. You must be aware of the fact that some people are better drivers than others and when snow and ice are part of the everyday game, knowing your limitations can make the difference between life and death.
But that’s not everything there is to know about driving in the winter. One of the probabilities if you’re a regular “long range” traveler during the cold season is that some day you’ll be faced with a reality check. You might be forced to survive for a couple of days or more stuck in the snow, with no one else around to help you out. You may be all by yourself or worse – stranded in impassible snow or a blizzard with your family.
Can you survive a three-day ordeal in the white Hell? Well, the short answer is yes, if you’re prepared to do it.

The best prepping strategy for surviving a blizzard, an ice storm or anything of the like is to avoid getting stuck in the snow in the first place.
We know it sounds obvious, but avoiding the mess by staying home during harsh weather is the best decision you could make if it’s even remotely possible. If that strategy is not an option, then what?
Well, let’s take a look at the prepping option.
