Snow Plow in St. Paul, MN

Did you know that the average annual snowfall in the Twin Cities is 45.3 inches with an average of 100 days per year with at least 1 inch of snow cover?  That’s a lot of days to get up early to clear the driveway to get out to work on time.  And if you aren’t in the peak of health – and we do mean THE PEAK – you shouldn’t be shoveling snow at all.  Actually, you shouldn’t even be pushing a snow blower.  Think we’re kidding just to get your business? Think again.

Cardiologist Grace Cater warns,Snow shoveling can be more strenuous than exercising full throttle on a treadmill.  While this may not be a problem if an individual is healthy and fit, it can be dangerous if not.

Shoveling, even pushing a heavy snow blower, can cause sudden increase in blood pressure and heart rate, and the cold air can cause constriction of the blood vessel and decrease oxygen to the heart.  All these work in concert to increase the work of the heart and trigger a potentially fatal heart attack.”  

Dr. Cater further offers these tips, if you are insisting on plowing your own snow:

  1. Avoid shoveling immediately after you awaken as most heart attacks occur early in the morning when blood is more prone to clotting.  Wait for at least 30 minutes and be sure to warm up.
  2. Do not eat a heavy meal before shoveling: blood gets diverted from the heart to the stomach.
  3. Do not drink coffee or smoke for at least one hour before or one hour after shoveling or during breaks.  These are stimulants and elevate your blood pressure and heart rate

Can you imagine following these guidelines before going to the office in the morning?  Sorry, man, no Starbucks for you if you plow your own snow!
