Hey Chicago, pull out that smart phone and snap a picture of your favorite “Snow Angels” on a clear sidewalk. Or, call out the “Snow Flakes” by sending pictures of their walks of shame. Email submissions to email@example.com. Tell us where and who you are and we’ll send you a Big Shovels magnet.
Thanks to http://gridchicago.com for submitting our first Snow Flake.
According to the Surgeon General’s Report on Physical Activity and Health (1996) 15 minutes of snow shoveling counts as moderate physical activity, half of the moderate physical activity that’s recommended for most days.
A 170-pound person will burn about 250 calories shoveling for 30 minutes.
