"It's heavy and it packs easy. As soon as you run over it, you can't get it back up," Don Noblett said.

The playbook to clear snow? Muscle vs. technology, which was happening near Crawford Park in Hanover Twp., Northampton Co.


As the clearing progressed, time took its toll.

"It's been very painful on my back," said Derek, an 11th grade student who was experiencing another snow day.

Veterans like Noblett, however, weren't ready to hit the bench just yet.

"I'm great, feel good but getting tired," said Noblett, 68.

With more snow on the way, a snow blower may be the winning play.

"Shoveling is fun, but snow blowing is more fun," John Merwath said.

Of course, acquiring a snow blower may be out of budget for many, but with more snow to come, it may be a wise investment.
