I went to college and then continued to live in an area where snow constantly covered the ground from at least Thanksgiving until Mother’s Day. Sometimes there would be snow on Halloween and occasionally in June too. These 8 tips for those living in the snow come from my years of dealing with this fluffy white stuff. Being unprepared for snowy weather can be very unpleasant. The 8 tips below might make it more enjoyable for you.

Be sure to check your snow shovel status well before winter arrives. Not only did I have one in the garage, but also in the house and a collapsible one in the car. You never know when you’ll need it. There were times when I had to shovel my way out of the house to get to the car. I also had moments that required me getting out of the car to shovel a path into the driveway, since the snowplow had so kindly blocked my drive with a thick hill of ice, snow, and salt.
