What a great workout. Instead of getting the blower I shovered with the shovel. Oh my heart rate is going.

Sounds like a great workout! Luckily, in TX we never have to deal with that! =)

Wow! Good for you! I have been going with the just-leave-it-there-and-hope-you-don't-slip-on-it method. That one doesn't burn calories though. Shoveling snow is VERY hard work! Especially when there are ice chunks in it. Way to go!!

Oh yeah were getting the snow. I could so shovel again right now. What I am not looking forward is the temps. Thank goodness my gym is less than a mile away.
