if Your car conked out, on a long journey in the middle of nowhere, and it was snowing and extremely cold

You had no reception to call break down, or anything,

No other cars were coming, differently desserted road

and You could see one house in the distance, and no other sign of life.

would You go to the house for warmth / ask to use their phone, or for any other reason, go to the house

1) GO to the house

or

2) Sleep in the car until morning

Are the only two options really. I'd do 1).

#2 isn't even an option though, you're eventually gonna have to go to the house or die from cold or starvation

-no reception on phone

-deserted road

-car conked out

-middle of nowhere

I assumed night as if it was in the day walking to the house (for me anyway) would just be an automatic given, whereas at night I wouldn't want to cause alarm as they could be scared and unwilling to help.

Going to the house is a no brainer whether night or day tbh.

and what if there was no house in the distance?

you're slippin if you plan a long journey in cold conditions / snow without emergency supplies in your boot which should include:

extra warm clothing/blanket/sleeping bag

snacks (ideally including a flask of something hot)

torch

spade

tbh

If at night -

Since learning to drive ive been scared of these situations, i have stock of blankets, water, chocolate and hand warmers in my boot.

I would def stay in my car and hope for help in the morning, i would prefer to approach the house in daylight.

I'd pull out the Sleigh from my boot and unleash my huskies...

Why would anybody with common sense go along deserted country lanes in the freezing snow :/

could be the quickest or only way to get to another town

it could be like December and it starts heavily snowing when the forecast mentioned only slight snow or something
