It’s finally snowing in Southeastern Wisconsin! After a couple of days in the 50’s, the temperatures dropped, and about 6” inches of snow fell. One of the most important things to protect when shoveling snow or when the temperatures fall is your hands. By covering up your hands, you can protect them from the elements and keep them warm
