Shovel That Snow Properly
Wear layered clothing
Give yourself plenty of time to complete the job
Take breaks and drink fluids--don't try to be a superperson and do it all at once
Use your legs to pick up and place the snow
Take small shovel fulls
Maintain a healthy heart so you can shovel snow more easily
