Are you planning on traveling this Christmas? If so, you should make emergency plans in case of inclement weather derail your best laid out plan. Winter storms can make traveling dangerous especially in areas that aren’t used to getting bad weather (like Dallas and Fort Worth). If you have to travel, you should make sure that you and your family dress as warm as possible in case you get stranded on the side of the road. Of course, it is best to stay put in a safe place and avoid driving if at all possible when the weather is bad. However, if you are traveling you never know if the weather is going to change in an instant.
As you are packing your suitcases, you should make sure to pack a few extra outfits in case you get stranded out of town. If you have extra clothes, you won’t have to scramble to find a place to do laundry or have to buy new clothes for your entire family. Extra clothes can also come in handy if you are involved in an accident, slide off the road, or get stranded on the side of the road. You can use the extra clothes to help stay warm. In fact, this happened to my husband this weekend while he was out of town on business when we got a winter storm that created a huge mess for motorists. He got lucky and is stuck where it is a bit warmer. He is currently stuck in a hotel because his flight home was canceled.
