White, fluffy flakes can be deceiving… when pilled up on your driveway these little flakes can form quite the obstacle to overcome for any homeowner. Shoveling your driveway can turn into quite a workout. Use these tips, from realtor.com, to stay safe while shoveling.
-Use a smaller shovel
-Make sure your shovel isn’t bent, tilting or otherwise damaged
-Take frequent breaks, even if only for a couple of minutes
-Stop and go inside if you become overheated
-Don’t try to flight snow long distances
-Stop if you feel any pain, experience shortness of breath or heaving sweating.
Stay safe and remember… you can always pay a neighbor kid a few bucks and save yourself the hassle of shoveling all together!
