You know, I get reall sick of the east coast complaining about cold and snow. Yes…things are pretty poopy out there right now. However, they act like this isn’t a REGULAR OCCURANCE for us “Fly over states!” The USA Today put out a list of Eight Things You Shouldn’t Leave in Your Car During Cold Temperatures. Here are 5 of them…
1. Cellphones: Lithium-ion batteries popular in these devices are particularly vulnerable to extreme cold.
2. Canned beverages: They might explode!
3. Musical instruments: Those made of wood may contract with the cold, causing tuning issues and other damage.
4. Medication: Freezing causes certain drugs to lose their effectiveness, including those that need to be shaken.
5. Low gas tank: Keeping the gas level above half a tank will prevent fuel lines from freezing.
Seroiously? Like…that is just a list of things we think about every single January day here in good old Wisco! So, I thought I would put together MY list of Five Things You Shouldn’t Leave in Your Car During Cold Weather…
- Drugs. Those are better put to use with your person or in your body
- Your Hopes and Dreams. Ha ha ha…just kidding. We don’t have those when we live on the Tundra
- Farts. Proven scientific fact that Cold weather makes farts more potent.
- Yourself. It’s freezing, dummy. Go inside!
