Slide 6: Prepare for the Ice and Snow


If you live in a part of the country likely to experience ice and snow, make sure you are ready for whatever winter has in store. If you rely on shoveling rather than blowing or throwing, go for an ergonomic snow shovel with a smaller scoop; it may lengthen the snow removal time, but it will be easier on your back (and heart). Other snow-control items to have on hand include a windshield scraper, ice melt, and roof rake (if your house is prone to ice dams).
