It is not clear how he, or the dog, got water.

They were stuck in deep snow, let me think... nope, can't figure it out

We keep emergency food, water and kibble in each of our vehicles.  The kibble gets replaced each time we buy another bag, but the food is an annual review.

If the dog's a husky, I hope he watched out where it goes.

I read that as extra dildo sauce.

This has got to be written by someone from a tropical climate who has never seen snow, or thought much about it.

This is why we don't clean my car.  We could survive weeks from all the dropped and half eaten stuff everybody leaves.

Was it Erma Bombeck that said cleaning while you have kids is like trying to shovel in a blizzard?

When I moved out of my parents house when I was 17, I had a friend who would buy me a Chilito/ChiliCheeseBurrito whenever he came by. I would get the extra sauces and later use them as the only thing on my Wonderbread sandwiches. No joke.

Very good idea to keep kibble.  Once your emergency food runs out, your dog is still alive...thus, replenishing your food supply

Bag of kitty sand, blankets, extra pair of socks, gloves, foldable shovel, jumper cables, tow strap, bottled water, plastic bags and a few MRE's. It all fits in a nice plastic tote for ease in portability.

0 calories in most of the Taco Bell packets.  So these were more a psychological help than actual nutrition.  Glad they are alright.  Don't use a fistful of those packets in your own emergency planning, other than something to add a little flavor to other food.

Double cheesy gordita crunch is one of the most fantastic pieces of fast food ever created so long as you order it *without* the oil-based sauce. Otherwise it's a greasy gross mess.
Then put the vinegar-based hot, mild, or fire sauce on it after they give it to you.

Not double sorry.  Don't know how speech to text turned "the" into "double".  I guess that's what you get for mumbling into your phone while you're waiting for your fix.

If I ate nothing but hot sauce packets, after a day it would be equivalent to negative calories.

I'd shiat myself so hard that I'd convert fat back into calories and fill my pants with that, too.

Seen it happen once, too.

CSB: Spent an evening playing D&D, with one friend sucking on Del Taco El Scorcho packets for the resulting endorphins.  At 3am, I'm following him on the way back towards our homes when he suddenly and at the very last second swerved two lanes to exit.  Clearly it was an emergency exit. (Heh)  I had to take the next exit and circle back to follow.

I found his car on the curb of a nearby Ralph's and found the next clue inside - He had surprised a grocery store janitor with "Bathroom!!!"

"Sorry sir we're closed."

"If I don't find a bathroom NOW I am going to drop my pants and shiat right HERE! "

He found the bathroom.  And was in there for an hour, bellowing like a bull as the oil found the exit...

Seriously, is this not standard practice in snow country anymore?

We ALWAYS had a gallon of water and some dry goods in the car during winter months, plus sleeping bags.

The general rule of thumb was pack enough to survive at least three days in a ditch.

Pretty much the same here, but with a folding saw, hatchet, USAF survival knife & a .38 with extra ammo. If I think I'm going to be in deep snow I have chains for all 4 wheels (4WD F-150 with locking rear).

There's no taco bells anywhere near me but on my recent flight back home I spotted one in the airport before I was leaving.  Was curious to try some stuff but didn't want to risk anything going south & fast when I'm stuck in the window seat of a 5 hour flight.

It takes a lot of energy (and a lot of snow) to make water. If he was warming up his car periodically, he could have melted enough water to stay comfortable. Using your body to melt snow is a no-no.

Running your car in deep snow is a good way to get carbon monoxide poisoning...

That's why I make sure my car is good and warmed up before I open the garage door.  Always makes me feel nice and light headed.

Let me guess... you have zero mountaineering experience, right? You have to melt a LOT of dry snow to get enough water to survive. And eating snow directly won't do a lot, besides give you frostbite in your mouth.

All the Florida store drive-thrus ask you "you want any hot mild or fire sauce" after you say "that's it" and  before they tell you the total. I'm a churchgoing guy but I bet I've heard that phrase more than "in the name of the Father the son and the holy ghost" in my life and. I used to go to taco Bell 6 days a week.
