Living in a snowy climate can be fun if you like snow, but it can result in some strange lifestyle adaptations.

For instance, you discover that gloves don’t keep your fingers warm and you double up on mittens, and you end up owning an excessive, yet completely justifiable, number of hats.

These truths were inspired by my morning haul of the kids to school in a sled. What can you add?

 

1. You carry kitty litter or crushed gravel wherever you go
