5 Ways To Relieve Sore Muscles After Shoveling Snow
If you are like a lot of Western New Yorkers chances are that you were out shoveling snow for most of the day yesterday.
Yesterday turned out to be one of the snowiest days in January in Western New York and the snow started early in the morning and didn't really stop until late in the afternoon.
The Buffalo airport reported 17.6 inches of snow which smashed the old daily record of nearly 9 inches of snow set back in the 1950s. More snow was reported north of the airport as well. Grand Island has a reported 22 inches of snow from the storm yesterday. Most areas in Western New York reported anywhere between 7 inches to slightly over 20 inches of snow.
So if you were like me, chances are you went out to shovel the snow from your driveway, walkway, and sidewalks several times yesterday. In fact, I was out four times to clear the snow.
With all the shoveling comes some aches and pains. Raise your hand if you woke up this morning a bit sore in your back, arms, and legs. I would raise my hand real high but my arms are so sore that I can only get them halfway.
As you head to work today, or maybe to the store to buy s snowblower, here are some things you can do to help ease the pain of those aches and soreness.
