This is an ADDENDUM and an updated post from two years ago. In addition to back pain, its imperative that you hydrate before and after the activity if you must do it at all. Lifting heavy snow stresses the heart, and those who are smokers, have underlying (subclinical) conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease etc., are at risk. For the general masses, the rule for hydration is 1 quart for 50 lbs. of body weight. If you feel chest pain, stop and go to the hospital, call 911. This could be serious.
A word about lower back pain and shoveling snow. You’ve all heard it before, bend at your knees, don’t lift and twist. With the recent snow, and the current major storm going on as we speak, its imperative to get your spine checked in the aftermath. Clearly, it’s a call to action to do pre and post…

I have thought a lot about the death of Yogi Berra today. I, a life time Yankee fan did not grow up in his hay day, but rather in the decline of the Yankees, seeing players who came after him including the sad decline of Mickey Mantle and the death of Thurman Munson. Also, not to forget a dear friend of mine, who also a great Yankee who had died a lonely death, Billy Martin.
In this day, may I say, that my curiosity as a fan, of this man was peaked by being near enough to his museum, to have a few cherished moments with my dad who has now passed, and my son who is carrying on my name. We visit that great little place of baseball with my dad and son, one of the rarest times we three got together.
We did not see Yogi there, but it was all Yogi, all baseball. In my humble opinion, I honestly believe that Yogi was baseball and if he had not created the museum, I would not have the one cherished memory of Yogi Berra, one of my most favorite of Yankees.
I would not have that memory with my dad, and son together. Thank you Yogi for being truer that true, and I believe, that every man should strive to be as Yogi, an ambassador to the human race, he was all things good and all things true. Live on Yogi, may your memory be eternal. The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be- Yogi Berra
