Six Winter Weather Life Hacks

  1. Spray nonstick cooking spray on your snow shovel to help keep the snow from sticking to the shovel.
  2. Shovel the street to the left of your driveway to make a smaller line of snow blocking your driveway when your street gets plowed.
  3. Shovel your sidewalk/driveway as soon as you can after the snow has stopped. It's lighter than waiting until the snow has melted and refroze.
  4. Fill your car's gas tank before the storm. The extra weight helps get you traction when driving in ice and snow.
  5. Put a bag of kitty litter in your trunk. Again, the extra weight is useful, plus you can use the litter to help get you out of an icy spot when your wheels are spinning.
  6. Pull into your driveway or a parking space backwards. If you need to get jump-started (or towed!) it's better for the tow truck to have access to the front of your car.
