Yes, Thursday and Friday, North Branch, Minnesota and much of Minnesota
could see 6-12 inches and more. (of course if you don't like the forecast change the channel).
So, what is heart attack snow.
It is heavy wet snow. The type that sticks to everything and doesn't like to come of the shovel.
Here are a few ways to protect yourself...
Shovel often if you shovel. Shovel 2-3 inches at a time.
When shoveling exhale when you lift the shovel, this takes a lot of stress off of the heart.
Spray your shovel with silicone or even a non-stick cooking spray like Pam.
If you wait and do it all at one time, take frequent breaks and drink a lot of water.
And, if you are able to...stay inside with a hot cup of cocoa and hire it done! But, don't forget to treat the shoveler!!!!
I expect to see this scene by early Friday.
