Snow Shovelers beware!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

Well, we finally got some snow.

It is almost done so it will be needing some removal of sidewalks and driveways.

This is a dangerous job.  Many people die because of  heart issues.

This snow is  one that will really do it to you.

WET and HEAVY!

When shoveling, we all know to bend at the knees when lifting.

The other thing that is most important...EXHALE!

Exhale when you lift to through.  It takes a lot of pressure off the heart.

This is a trick that weightlifters do.

Take my advice.  I do both of these and I am here to tell you it works.

 

This wet heavy snow is a killer.

We we lived in New Jersey there was a lot of shivering snow . . . .  in south Floeida not so much.

Good luck and success.

I don't care for snow at all but just today the forecasters were calling for a cold dry winter in the northeast and in a drought situation that is not a good thing

Hello William

Very well said and so very true, that heavy snow can throw you back out quickly also

Thanks for the advice Bill, that first big snowfall does lead to a lot of heart attacks.

This is a good reminder for all of us. My wife worries about me every time that I shovel snow.
