I still keep it in the back of my mind when traveling far, almost got caught in a blizzard a couple years ago in-between Az-Nm border, weather was slowly coming in and had been driving for 14hrs so I needed to sleep. got a cheap motel off the 40 and slept for 2hrs, woke up at 4am and there was already 7in of snow dropped in a 2hr timeframe. haha I took off so quick that I left my phone.
anyways, I try to keep my bolt bag packed with weather/area appropriate gear.
