It’s that time of the year again! Along with great skiing and tobogganing comes a lot of snow. Unfortunately, it falls in the driveway as well as on the trails and slopes.  Below are some tips to consider when shovelingall that snow;

Always wear a hat and mittens when shoveling.If you have blood pressure problems, cover as much of your face as possible while outside in cold weather and don’t over-exert yourself. Shoveling snow is of particular concern for middle-aged men with hypertension or high blood pressure.

Using a snow blower to clear your walk or driveway can be much easier than working with an old-fashioned shovel. But using modern equipment still demands old-fashioned common sense.
