We just broke out of a pretty significant North Dakota cold snap.

Overnight lows around 20 plus below and subzero highs are not a great way to ring in the New Year.  Thankfully, we're getting a couple of days to warm up before we dive back into tundra temperatures for the middle part of the week.

I happened to leave a bottle of Powerade Zero in my truck over the cold spell.

Needless to say, it was frozen solid after one 20 below night.  I decided to let it unthaw in the house last night and I brought it to work this morning.  The color (light blue) didn't look as bright.  I shook it several times before I took a sip.  YUCK, it just didn't taste right.  No matter how many times I shook it, something wasn't right.  Yep, freezing temperatures can mess with just about everything.

This got me thinking, what else should we avoid leaving in our vehicles when the mercury plunges? 

According to an article on Boston 25 News, you should avoid letting the following freeze in your vehicle.  Most of these are obvious, but a few of these might surprise you.  I also added an item from my own experience.  If you're a big hunter like myself, you are going to want to keep this one in mind.

So, without further ado, here are 6 things you should keep out of your vehicles once the temperatures get fridged.
