Safe shoveling. If you’re just now venturing outside, we’ll repeat our tips for safe shoveling:

• First, if you're out of shape, don't exercise regularly, or have trouble breathing or heart problems, don't shovel snow.

• Dress in layers.

• Stretch before you shovel, to get those muscles working and have a better chance of not seriously hurting yourself.

• Bend at the knees, not at the waist, and lift with your legs and abdominal muscles to protect your spine from injury.

• Rest regularly.

• Or, better yet, hire those neighborhood kids who are roaming the streets in search of work.
