Snow Shoveling Made Easier

We can all thank Heloise for these which she ran in Hints From Heloise today (1/24/10) in the Daily Breeze.

I don't know how many of you are facing Great Drifts, but her readers wrote in with the following suggestions.

Use a garden rake to bust up packed snow which will then make it easier to shovel.

Spray the shovel with non-stick vegetable spray - snow should slide right off and you don't have to damage your shovel by banging it on the concrete below.

"I wear kitchen mittens while out there shoveling and my hands stay toasty warm." wrote one devoted reader.

Me?  I'd say that if you're 50+ and not in top shape, hire someone!  Heart attacks cost more than a hired hand.
