And snow it is!

Well we were told to look for snow and we found it.

Nothing like what PA got.

But, this is a gentle reminder.

Snow shoveling is a killer.

So if you are shoveling, take frequent breaks.

Stand up and stretch the back muscles.

Remember to stay hydrated.

When lifting the snow breath out, it is easier on the heart.

 

But one of the things few people think about is warming up  the muscles.

Take just a couple of minutes and stretch. 

Muscle pulls are less likely to happen!

 

Yes, it looks like this again.

 

Drive safely

Good morning, William Feela lifting heavy wet snow is just like lifting a barbell.... you need to use your legs...stand up straight and then empty the shovel.... if you do this in a rhythm, you'll have a great workout.... I go for one+ hours with no breaks....

I have to say that is one good thing about living in the South.  When we do see snow, it only sticks around for a few days.  So, snow shoveling is at a minimum.  Happy Selling!

We have a snow shovel and scraper but can't remember the last time my husband used it. We don't get much snow.

William,  I am shoveling the sun rays here in San Jose.  It is a little chilly here - 65 degrees is the high for the day ... but we do manage the "freezing" cold temps here by mixing it will a little ray of sunshine.

Hi William- BRrrrrrr!  Good reminder to take it easy out there if you are shoveling the snow.  I've read about some people having heart attacks when doing this!

Bill, Great blog and information.  You are right about the health issues.

Hi William.  In my younger days, I really enjoyed shoveling snow after a storm.  I'm not sure how well I would enjoy it these days.

The news is loaded with stories about epic amounts of snow pummeling part of the country.  I feel guilty enjoying 60 degree days and sunshine.
