These are the 10 items you should have on hand as the weather turns cold and the snow begins to fall.
We have been lucky in Illinois this winter. We have not yet seen bitter cold or a large shower of snow.

With that in mind, Patch has compiled a list of items you should keep in your car during the colder months. Much of the information below was compiled from weather.com. Get news where you live.
