There is no way to completely avoid being shut down on the interstate because of weather. It's happened to me twice - once in 1998 on I-40 in West Texas and again in Big Cabin, Oklahoma around 2000. Both of those instances only lasted a few hours. I've never been stuck on the road for longer than about four hours. I have been shut down in parking lots a time or two. One thing is for sure - there is NO EXCUSE for not being able to survive 24 hours of a shut down no matter where it happens. Let's talk about a few options and preparations that can save you from starving or freezing when the unthinkable happens.
