I felt better driving home from my second shift job knowing I was prepared. I ended up using the blanket to cover a woman who had been accident. I'll never see the blanket again, but hopefully it helped her not go into shock before the emergency personnel arrived!

Oh yes, along with all the things in the suitcase, you should put some bottles of water, snacks, change of weather appropriate clothing, etc. I keep mine in year round, you know know if you may need the water or food.
Bless you for being willing to help that lady!
Keeping a kit in your car is such a good idea, and it's an especially good idea to keep it in the backseat-most people keep it in their boot (US-car trunk) and then can't get to it in an emergency like being stuck in a snow drift. We get a lot of that here in north Scotland and the advice is to keep the kit in the backseat. Glad to see you posting a tip to do so for Americans!
We're also advised here in Scotland to keep some energy bars and water in the kit, along with a first aid supplies.
Luckily this winter has been mild compared to last year, both here in the UK and in the American South where my son and grandson are (AL). But you never know what can happen, and being prepared is the best way to peace of mind!
