Not that I've ever had to do it, but what's so hard about shoveling some snow? I have driven when there's snow everywhere (real snow in the mountains in Colorado, not like in Texas when we get an inch that doesn't stick and we freak out because "OMG OMG IT'S SNOWING!!! Are they canceling work and school?" ) and I think icy is much worse because you can suddenly lose control of the car (that's what happened to me in the accident that was my fault) if you hit a slick patch that you couldn't see. Snow seems fine in my limited experience.
Depending on how much of it there is: it can be heavy. Barbie shovels won't quite cut it. Additionally, from my limited experience, there can be a layer of ice underneath the snow that has to be hacked. With that said, I find the ice to be more annoying than the snow, simply because you have to scrape it from your car windows, and your sidewalks, but you also have to drive much more carefully on it.
