When my husband and I lived in our first house along the main drag of a little town, our adorable Victorian home framed perfectly by oak trees, I often found myself cursing our parking situation. Older homes are on smaller lots, lots that don’t accommodate garages. I spent many a’winter battling the snow and ice just to get into my car! That’s why I consider myself an expert on avoiding iced doors and generally being a ninja in the winter months.
