If you’re anywhere East of the Mississippi, you’ve got snow, and lots of it! You’re also probably snowed-in and will stay snowed-in until you do something about it (or until the snow melts in the spring). Enter the snow shovel.

When you’re out shoveling, wear proper gloves and be aware of frost bite and know the symptoms before you end up turning black and blue. We recommend winter work gloves. Made with a leather shell, they have the durability of a work glove plus the extra warmth. Pick a pair up here.
