VersionTECH. Mini Handheld Fan, USB Desk Fan, Small Personal Portable Table Fan with USB Rechargeable Battery Operated Cooling Folding Electric Fan for Travel Office Room Household Black

Yes, we need fans for winter. Some of the days may get cold, but they may also heat back up into the 90s. If you don't want to lug around a different set of clothes, you can just prepare for cold mornings, and use this fan in the afternoon until you can get home and out of that sweater.

We may not need a set of tire chains, but it's good to stay on top of your tire air pressure as we get those occasional cold days.

Panasonic RF-2400D AM / FM Radio

East Texas schools will close if they believe adverse weather conditions may keep people from making it safely. The colder weather can also mess with the plumbing sometimes, and a school will ask to keep kids at home if their plumbing is faulty.

The internet is great and everything, but nothing beats a trusty local DJ with a morning show and a list of closing schools.

Nestle Hot Chocolate Mix, Hot Cocoa, Milk Chocolate Flavor, Made with Real Cocoa, 0.71 oz Packets (Pack of 60)

This article is most likely going to seem insulting to our friends in the north, but it isn't really our fault that our Winter preparedness kit is basically a joke. I've gone outside on Christmas day and began sweating under the heat of the sun. As Jan and Feb roll around, it might be good to have cocoa on hand for the colder days.
