Shoveling snow = ow.

I personally find shoveling snow to be a reasonable way to wake up. Forces me out of bed and gets the blood pumping, doncha know?

But, yeah, it's a pain both physically and mentally. (It takes close to an hour to shovel my driveway if we've gotten a decent amount of snow. I'd generally prefer the extra hour of sleep!)

Something that may help is to look through your local hardware stores for a bent shovel like this one: The Back-Savor Ergonomic Snow Shovel. It's saved me a lot of back pain over the last year, since I don't have to bend over so much to move the snow around.

I think that I'll just take my lesson and not try to get up the driveway when it's snowed. We hardly get much out here, though this year Nature has made a concerted effort to disprove that, and so I can refrain from this in the future.

Thankfully, I am now reasonable enough that when I realized my back was beginning to hurt, I stopped.
