Bismarck has seen some of the coldest temperatures and wind chills in the nation!

After a very warm December, we even had the warmest December day in the history of Bismarck (66), you just knew we were going to pay for it eventually.  That time is now as we've seen sub-zero temperatures now for several days.  A few more are on the way this week before we climb out of this cold snap by next weekend.

I happened to leave a bottle of Powerade Zero in my truck earlier this week. 

Needless to say, it was frozen solid after a freezing 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.

6 Items You Shouldn't Let Freeze In Your Vehicle
