Late Spring Snows Can Be a Pain in Your Back

Once the temperature warms up, spring snowfalls can be heavily saturated with water so even a light snowfall may be heavier than a mid-winter snow.

Take care not to fill the shovel all the way as it may be much heavier to lift than you expect.
Unexpected weight matched with too little lift can cause sudden contraction of unprepared back muscles which causes strain.
