In the garage. It keeps it warm and melts all the snow off it.

There isnt really a choice for what is most likely the most common place..
we have:

In warm storage (e.g. warm garage).
In cold/sub-zero storage (e.g. shed).

But the most common is probably:

In unheated, attached garage.

Its not "warm", because its not heated.
but its also not "sub-zero" because its usually warmer than outside.

Good poll, maybe because the same poll was on my list to initiate!

My wife won't allow me to build a shed, my double garage holds my tools, welding, table saw, wood, metal, Xmas stuff, bicycles, lawn beach chairs, step ladders, and unused personal items because we don't have a basement. So my mowers, leaf blower, and snowblowerssss! sit under a tarp accumulating moisture problems.

1986 Ariens ST522, 5hp, 22"
1995 Murray Craftsman 10hp, 29" w. 12" impeller
A 1983 Real John Deere 10hp, 32" w. 12" impeller, 16" auger, 20" high front, cast iron gear box, chains
Noma 9hp, 27" w. 12" impeller
Noma 5hp, 24" w. 12" impeller, 20" high front
Gravely Convertible, 12hp Kohler cast iron, 26" width, 600 lbs of cast iron & steel, 2 speed impeller, 4 ground speeds
Dynamark 8hp, 26", 12" impeller, for sale
Several other 5hp, 8hp, several 2 cycle, all for sale

I don't have enough room in my shed in the winter, and I don't have a garage, so she sits outside under a cover

I notice lately that some enterprising locals are building and selling "snowblower sheds". Basic 4 x 5 x 5 ft. boxes.

In my garage that gets just a bit of heat from the boiler room with the door left open in the winter, but the garage isn't what I would call heated.
