Okay so I am leaving for Wyoming driving tomorrow.. I will be driving through Nevada, AZ, Utah, then Wyoming. I know that I will hit snow storms on the way.. I have never drove in snow & ice before.. So I need advise from those who have.. Like if I hit black Ice what do you do.. etc.. any and all possibilities.. What kind of things should I have with me incase of emergency. Like I am going to buy flares, bring blankets, food, matches.. a shovel, flashlight.. I have snow chains for my truck.. What else should I bring for a just in case situation? And really what do you do if you lose control?.. As you can tell I am a little nervous about the trip and being prepared for what ever might happen. I am a good driver.. and have made cross country trips a few times.. just never through snow and snow storms..
Here's a link that might be helpful to you.... http://www.weather.com/activities/driving/drivingsafety/drivingsafetytips/snow.html

Drive slow in the snow and ice. If it is snowing, put your lights on. Even in the day time. Give your self plenty of room ,if a car is in front of you. You don't want to be so close to them ,and they slam on there breaks, and you do to and you go sliding into them. Bring blankets , water and food with you . Just in case you get stranded in the snow.
