If you live in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine or any of the surrounding areas, you’re currently in the midst of a massive snow storm. Forecasts call for more than 12 inches of snow in New York City and the nearby New Jersey suburbs, and even more snow will fall on Thursday across some regions in the Northeast.

Are you bundled up in your bed or on your couch right now, dreading the thought of having to deal with all that snow? If you answered “yes” to that question, you’re doing it wrong. All you need are the right tools for the job and in this post, we’ll show you five different purchases you should make right now so that you’re prepared for the next major snowstorm.

Shovel

You know that crappy old shovel you use to clear snow? The one that’s falling apart because you’ve been abusing it for several years now? Yeah, throw it in the garbage ASAP and order one of these highly-rated shovels instead. They each feature designs that mark dramatic improvements over the standard shovel design, helping to ensure you can clear snow as efficiently as possible — and helping ensure that you don’t hurt your back. One of them is even electric!

Before the storm even hits, you should use high-quality snow melt on all of your steps and walkways to help before you even start clearing. Then, use snow melt again after each time you shovel.

Snow Brush
