Can't stand the time it takes to shake an ash into an ashtray and put the cancer-stick back in your yellow teethed gob. Well this contraption is just for you.
Pebble-Filled Tray Make a boot tray by the door even better: Fill it with stones (found at garden centers). Ice and snow will melt and drain through the rocks to the bottom of the tray, so your boots won't stand in a puddle. Most of the moisture will evaporate, but you should clean out the tray regularly.
