Who shovels? DH!
Do you wear boots? I might buy some... but normally I just wear my shoes through the winter.
What is the hardest thing about snow for you? Hauling around all the baby stuff to and from the car to house, etc.
What kind of jacket do you wear? Right now just a long coldish weather one, but in a few weeks I will bring out the big puffy winter coat.
Do you wear a hat? Yes! I LOVE hats!
Gloves or mitts? Gloves.
Do you have winter tires? No car.
Are all the leaves off your trees? Almost.
Do you rake the leaves before the snow falls? Yes.
Any interesting snow fact here: We use the back patio to store pop and beer. Anything in a bottle that needs to be served cold stays out there. That way we have more room in our fridge.

Do you wear boots? I have low boots with fuzzy insides. Great for my daily bank run.
What kind of jacket do you wear? Right now I have fake shearling. But once it gets cold cold, I have a parka that I hope will fit all winter.
Do you wear a hat? No. I should though.
Gloves or mitts? Mitts
Do you have winter tires? No, just all season
Are all the leaves off your trees? No trees in an apartment!
Do you rake the leaves before the snow falls? No since no trees
Any interesting snow fact here: At work I park in a heated underground parking lot, so my car is always snow-free and warm when I leave work. Too bad I couldn't have the same deal at home.
