For those of us in the northern regions of the world, winter brings with it a set of challenges that those in the southern region don't face. Winter weather, such as frost, snow and freezing rain all make our mornings a little more miserable. It takes time the shovel that snow, dig out the car or even just scrape the windows and defrost. The folks at Boondoggle have felt our pain and have developed Winter Wake-up. This is an alarm clock app that will monitor weather conditions overnight and will wake you earlier if you need extra time to prepare for your departure due to winter weather. There is a setting for frost and one for snow and even another one if it so bad that it isn't worth the effort (although your boss might think differently...). It is free in the Apple App Store, so check it out.
