How to shovel snow…and not hurt yourself

Ok, we’re just not that young anymore. Ok, even if you are, you haven’t seen a snow like this here…ever. A couple of feet and still snowing.

Here is a very timely video from my good friend and physical therapist Gabrielle Czaja. Watch this video and maybe you can avoid spending some quality time with her later on. The video was taken in front of my house and I’ve added a photo so you can see what it looked like 24 hours later.

And I flexed to scoop. Still snowing though.

  1. Thank you very much Jane, I hope everyone will find this helpful! When the sun comes out tomorrow (and it will!) REMEMBER: A LITTLE BIT at a time! Skim a few inches off the top, go inside, take a break, then go out again. Take your time, and drink lots of water when you come back in. Don’t tackle it all at once.
