Well, where I live cars can often look like this photo! The cold and snow and can get out of hand in a hurry. Last winter was almost traumatizing as it was one of the coldest and snowiest I could ever remember!! If it wasn't 30 to 40 below with wind chill (this is NOT an exaggeration!!)... it was a constant blizzard dumping a foot of snow on us! So far this has been a mild winter and I sure hope it stays that way.
I feel blessed because we have an attached garage. It keeps our vehicles nice and warm, but I especially love not having to be out in the cold when, for example, I'm hauling in groceries or something. That being said, I don't think I could live without my CAR STARTER! Lol It's such a wonderful thing to be out somewhere, like my kiddos' hockey game in a freezing rink, and to be able to start my car before I need to go out to it. When I do get to my car it's nice and warmed up already. I'm telling ya folks - that's priceless where I live!! Sort of related to that..I would also say I couldn't live without the fact that my vehicle has 4-wheel drive. That's almost a must up here in the north.
This may seem so odd - but when I was really thinking about it, this popped in my head. In the winter I could not live without my HUMIDIFIER. Due to the weather and cold I mentioned above, our heat is running all the time in the winter. This constant heating makes our house really dry. So we need a large humidifier unit to combat this and keep it from being too dry in here. The moisture it puts in the air helps with preventing sinus headaches and dry skin - which I always get if it's too dry - and also helps the wood furniture from getting too dry.
And I couldn't get through winter without my favorite people in the whole wide world to keep me warm.
