Please be careful while shoveling...

WE have had two light weight snow falls.

It was very easy to move.

But we as humans get spoiled.

This next snow will be heavier and harder to shovel.

Don't try and do it all at once.

Take a few breaks.  Heart attacks are killers.

One good tip is when shoveling, exhale when lifting.

It puts a lot less stress on the heart!


Don't forge to feed the birds if you have been feeding them.

I woke up early, did a short meditation, prepped my smoothie, put on snow pants, sweater, warm socks, hat, long down coat, gloves and went out to shovel. Damn, I just did it a few days ago. No one except a couple kids at the bus stop were out. There was only one set of tire tracks in the alley,  I could tell that it was a jeep.  More is on it's way. Can we blame it on the Groundhog?

No shoveling for me ever, Bill. I will have to wait on mother nature to melt it for me.

Morning William.

Or you could just move to a place that gets little to no snow at all.

I was sitting here wondering. . .What do the elderly, who aren't able to shovel do?  Are there those they can hire to get it done?  I've never lived where you need to shovel snow, so I'm clueless.

Bill, you make two good points.The part of not holdin g your breath when lifting is so important.

Good morning Bill. You are absolutely right and it really matters. Enjoy the day.

Great advice. Snow shoveling does take its toll each winter.  We used to shovel snow for older folks when we lived in Alaska.

Anything too strenuous can certainly be taxing on the body.
