We're expecting our first real snowfall of about 10 - 15cm, since the storm we received on Christmas
With forecasts calling for up to 10-15cm of snow for Creemore and Wasaga Beach, it's important to make sure that we're properly equipped to handle the task of clearing it from our driveways and sidewalks. Here are a few tips to make the job a little easier:
Dress in layers: When clearing snow, it's important to dress warmly to protect yourself from the cold. Make sure to wear layers so that you can easily adjust to your body temperature as you work.
Use the right tools: A good snow shovel is essential for clearing snow. Make sure to choose a shovel that is comfortable for you to use and that has a sturdy handle. A snow blower can also make the job much easier, especially for larger areas.
Start early: The earlier you start clearing snow, the easier the job will be. If you wait until the snow has piled up, it will be much harder to remove.
Work in sections: Instead of trying to clear all the snow at once, work in sections to make the task more manageable. Start with the most important areas, such as the driveway and sidewalks, and then move on to other areas as needed.
Take breaks: Clearing snow can be a physically demanding task, so it's important to take breaks to rest and stretch. This will help to prevent injury and make the job less tiring.
Be safe: Snow clearing can be dangerous, so always be aware of your surroundings and watch out for slippery surfaces. Take your time and use caution when working on steep or uneven terrain.
By following these tips, you can make the task of clearing snow a little easier and keep yourself safe while doing it. Stay warm and safe!
