Looks like snow totals were a bit less than expected.... but still use caution if you have to travel today. For those shoveling snow, keep these safety tips in mind to avoid injury:
•If you have heart trouble, do not shovel without a doctor's permission.
•Do not shovel after eating or while smoking.
•Take it slow! Pace yourself. Be sure to stretch out and warm up before taking on the task.
•Shovel only fresh snow.
•Push the snow as you shovel.
•Do not pick up too much at once.
•Lift with your legs bent, not your back. Keep your back straight.
•Do not work to the point of exhaustion. If you run out of breath, take a break.
The snow has begun! If you have to be out on the road today - be safe and take precautions:
•Listen for radio or television reports of travel advisories issued by the National Weather Service.
•Do not travel in low visibility conditions.
•Avoid traveling on ice-covered roads, overpasses, and bridges if at all possible.
•Be sure to have a fully-charged cell phone with you.
•If you must travel, let someone know your destination and when you expect to arrive. Ask them to notify authorities if you are late.
•Check and restock the winter emergency supplies in your car before you leave.
•Never pour water on your windshield to remove ice or snow; shattering may occur.
•Always carry additional warm clothing appropriate for the winter conditions.
