    Preparedness happened back in early December.
    Anything you are doing now is reactionary, and does not qualify as being prepared.
    Perhaps someone should buy Fox17 a thesaurus and dictionary set, so that they can learn what the prefix “pre” signifies.
    In addition, while I see a variety of material things mentioned, but the most important things to have for winter driving are patience, caution, and common sense, which are all available for free from your parents.
    If you were not given these things by your parents, they have failed you.
    Fortunately, you can seek these things out from other people for free as well.
    And you should, as they are useful in every situation you will ever encounter throughout your life.
