We all know that winter can come at a moments notice in Montana.

One day we are all wearing shorts and enjoying 80 degree weather, the next day it is 20 below and we have to dig out the long johns and snow boots to go out and shovel the sidewalk.

That is why now it is the perfect time to check to see if your winter survival kit is ready to go in your car for winter driving.

What Do I Need In My Winter Survival Kit?

These items can and will literally save your life should you find yourself stranded on the road during a snowstorm in Montana.

Even if you have a kit in your car, you might want to take the time to go out and check to make sure that everything is still there.

Also anything that could be past an expiration date needs to be checked, thrown out if past the date, and then replaced.
