Remember when you were a kid and the notion of impending snow brought only excitement? Sledding, snowball fights, hot cocoa, a day off from school? The reality of adulthood is that snow means shoveling. If you have back problems or shoulder issues, that can be a problem — or, worse, a danger.
But it doesn't have to be that way. You can look forward to snow like a kid if you have a plan for clearing the driveway without straining your body. All it takes is the right tool.
The Snow Joe is a motorized snow shovel that not only gets the job done but also makes the task fun. It's on sale at QVC for a limited time, sown from its original price of $206 to just $170.
