Winter’s Not Over, Yet

In the big winter storm of a fortnight ago, at least 50 people died. Some of those were from traffic accidents, a very tragic few were from hypothermia, and a shocking amount of them were from shoveling snow. The problem with shoveling snow is, it’s _very_ strenuous. For people who exercise and work every day, it shouldn’t be a big deal; but there are a number of people who passed on, from as young as 40 — which is what happens when you’re not in good enough shape and take up something that extreme. We’ve made it this far, but regardless of what the groundhogs say tomorrow, winter isn’t over yet. Big storms are predicted over much of the country the next 2 weeks, so be extra cautious, and hire a neighbor kid to shovel the snow.
