Atlanta Blogger Shares What She Learned about Snow Shoveling in Atlanta | Families
Mableton, GA--Four Things I Learned Shoveling Snow in ATLANTA I walked by the window yesterday and saw my neighbor outside clearing her driveway, got excited and volunteered to go shovel ours. I live in an equal opportunity house, Husband had no objection, and I really wanted to get out for a minute. We’ve been snowed in since Sunday night. Enough said.
While it SEEMED like a good idea, I grew up in Connecticut and thought I knew everything about snow, I quickly learned a few things: Don’t volunteer to shovel snow when its NOT snow. It was ice. Solid ice. Yeah, that’s different than the light, fun, fluffy stuff. I should’ve turned myself around when I stepped on it and slid 6 feet across the driveway.
Get yourself a BIG shovel. And apparently some other tools – like an ice pick. Ok, I didn’t have an ice pick, or a shovel for that matter so I borrowed my neighbor’s and used a metal rake to break up the ice before I shoveled it. Hard core, right?
Shoveling ICE is a workout. I’ve been in Atlanta too long and forgot everything I learned in Snow Shoveling 101 like it’s a WORKOUT. I got two workouts in yesterday and I think the shoveling might have burned more calories than my dumbbells. Good for Project Me.
