We don't handle the cold very well in East Texas. For many of us, if it drops into the 40's that's cold enough. As someone who prefers the 90 to 100 degree heat of the summer, winter is always going to be miserable. Just like with the extreme heat, there are items we should not leave in our car during the extreme cold. With the exception of one item, most of us have these in our car on a regular basis.

We Don't Have a White Christmas, We Have Leaves

Every Christmas season, we hear "White Christmas." The song gives us the illusion of waking up on Christmas morning with the ground covered in snow while we open presents. For us in East Texas, we don't have a white Christmas, we have leaves covering the ground with the possibility of walking around in the sunshine in shorts and flip flops. Whether we'll have even a cold Christmas still remains to be scene.

Extreme Heat and Cold

Every summer in East Texas can be extremely hot, especially when our car has been parked in that heat for a couple of hours. The heat can be so dangerous inside of our cars that it's not safe for people, pets, groceries, electronics or other items. The same can be said when we have those occasional cold snaps.

Before a Cold Blast

When it does get cold in East Texas, it gets cold. We can get an artic blast that will drop temperatures in the mornings into the 20s or even teens. That's why when we know a cold blast is coming, there are some items that need to be removed from our cars before it hits because they could be damaged, or cause some serious damage, while in our car.
