When snow and ice are on the ground, you see a lot of people loading the bed of their pickup truck with heavy stuff to help with traction on the slippery roads. PLEASE REMEMBER that whatever you have in the back of the truck can go flying if you are involved in a crash. Using firewood or cement blocks may lead to serious injury!
In the winter, my hands occasionally become so cold that it is uncomfortable. To keep a good grip on the steering wheel and stay warm at the same time, I tried a pair of fingerless gloves (aka gauntlets). Bought them at Target, and have seen them on ebay and amazon.com.
Works for me! I keep them in the car under the radio where there is a little opening. I've tried gloves and mittens of various fabrics, but the fingerless gloves work better. Probably the fingerless gloves that are used for weight lifting might work as well if the wrists aren't pulled too tightly and you don't mind grappling with them every time they are needed.
