You may love snow and the promise of winter activities that it brings. But winter storms can also have a dark side. Blizzards, for instance, can cause safety hazards and even damage your property.
If you venture outdoors to shovel, dress in layers, stretch before you begin and take breaks as you clear the snow, Ready Colorado says.
The Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association suggests that, once the storm has passed, check snow accumulation on the downwind side of higher-level roofs (where blowing snow typically collects), and consult a professional contractor who can remove the ice and snow safely, and without damaging your roof.
