West Virginia Man Demonstrates Snow Shoveling Life Hack


Joshua Jordan of West Virginia was sick and tired of the sore back associated with incessant snow shoveling.

Therefore, he decided to get crafty and find a better way to move all that white stuff! Watch as he starts with a snowball and rolls it across the lawn, allowing the snow to stick together and ultimately clearing a path to expose the ground underneath!

While we’re not sure this technique would work with white powdery snow (the wet sticky kind seems to be a requirement), we’re pretty impressed by his cleverness!

According to WebMD, snow shoveling-related injuries send thousands of people to the hospital every year. They report that “muscle, ligament, tendon, and other soft tissue injuries topped the list of […] mishaps.
Among these, lower back injuries were common.” While Joshua’s snowball-rolling strategy may require some uncomfortable crouching, we have to admit it’s probably less strenuous than heaving heavy shovelfuls of snow over your shoulder!
