2. If the temperature is in the low 20's the snow will be powder like and light. If the temperature is closer to 30, the snow flakes will be larger, wetter and heavier. Push and lift accordingly.

4. If you are getting out of breath and are older, take frequent breaks. People suffer heart attacks moving snow and you do not want to be a statistic.
