Let’s get this out of the way right at the beginning: Shoveling stinks.
And I get the sense that rings true no matter how many limbs you have.
I’ve never in my life, though, adapted a shovel to “work better” for me. I’ve always just used what’s available. In what is becoming a fairly obvious theme (to me), I just cleared snow however I could. I never thought about having one hand or having to do it differently than anyone else; I just did it how I did it…yo.
And as far as the snow blower goes, I’m pretty sure I’ve only used it about five times. Ever. I think the video reflects that accurately.
Getting a little technical for a minute: Both of these activities (shoveling and using a snow blower) cause me physical pain. My back hurts from bending over awkwardly and my wrist hurts badly while snow blowing. Snow blowing is actually worse (of the two) because I’m bent weirdly and my wrist hurts from guiding the entire machine. I fully realize there are other ways to do it, but here’s the thing…
I live in a condo. People shovel my driveway for me.
(The driveway and snow blower in the video belong to my in-laws.)
