30 Things You Need To Survive A Blizzard

January may be wrapping up, but it's certainly not warming up. Mother Nature still has plenty of steam — or, rather, sub-zero-degree air blasts — left. Our fellow Northeast dwellers know what we're talking about: cold fronts, blizzards, and ice storms galore. You surely have a coat and a pair of boots at the ready, but will they actually cut it in these vortex climes? (Remember how ill-prepared you were last year?) Just in case, we rounded up 30 cold-weather musts to combat anything that's blowing our way on the weather map. Bring it on.
