get a wide plastic one for snow and a metal one for ice

I’d never considered that’s what each was for... I always thought cheap vs. expensive.

Better LPT: Buy a small shovel like this for the trunk of your car. It will really help if you get snowed in at work or other places

Even better LPT: make your living arrangements in such a way that you don't spend your life doing maintenance work.

Wow, very helpful. Not everyone has that luxury.

I can’t control that my workplace doesn’t have an underground parking garage.

You can control where you live and where you work. You choose to live in car-dependent place. I choose to not live in such a place, therefore I never have to worry about shoveling snow when it gets cold. Also don't need to worry about car door freezing, don't need to worry about pushing snow out of my driveway etc. I just put my winter boots on and that's basically it.

I got a new job that’s paying 25k more than my previous one. I’m willing to deal with the downside of occasionally having to scrape my car, for an extra 25k a year.

Cool, thanks. I had to drive all the way to Flagstaff to find some, but I finally found a couple snow shovels. I just made it back to Phoenix. So, what do I do with the shovels now?

Any suggestions on where to buy a snow shovel? I checked all the supermarkets and home goods stores in Orlando, and nobody seems to have them.
