They suggest that anyone travelling in the current icy conditions should make sure they have the following items with them:

Shovel
Blankets or sleeping bag
Extra clothing including hat and gloves
24 hours worth of food
De-Icer
Rock Salt
Flashlight with spare batteries
Road Flares or Reflective Triangles
Empty gas Can
First Aid Kit
Booster cables

I looked like an idiot on the bus this morning !

Things are different now, aren't they? When I was a kid an emergency supply kit was a dozen beer and an extra pack of smokes. Now I keep a sleeping bag and a little emergency kit in the truck all winter and throw in some water, food, etc. if I'm going on a trip.
