Check Out These Snow Shoveling Tips Before the Year’s First Storm

Snow Shoveling Tips

Already dreading the impending snowfall this year, and the inevitable snow shoveling that will follow? Whether you’re a staunch believe in “shovel in stages” or “shovel it all at once,” here are some snow shoveling tips to help you out:

  • First of all, invest in quality materials. Ditch your old, broken shovel and buy some new, durable gloves.
  • Try to shovel the snow whenever the sun is shining. You will be less cold, and perhaps some of the snow could even melt.
  • If you’re tired, take a break! A back injury is much worse than a snowy driveway.
  • Once you’re done, be sure to lay down some rock salt, perhaps preventing more snow in the future.
  • Find out if anyone in your neighborhood is offering snow-shoveling services, which is a great way for stronger kids to earn money.
  • If all else fails, give in and buy yourself a snow blower.
