Snow Shoveling Fatigue Setting In

January 17, 2011, 5:05 PM by Hailey Higgins

Snow Shoveling Fatigue Setting In
SIOUX FALLS, SD - As another round of snow is dumped on KELOLAND, many people have to pull out the shovels again Monday.

Ron Knott worked up a sweat outside his Sioux Falls home. Usually his kids shovel the snow, but Monday he gave them a break.

"These aren't bad, but you have to get them done," Knott said.

He said he has only had to shovel three times this season and isn't burnt out. And even though there isn't a huge amount of snow, he said it's important to clear the walks.

"If you get it off now, then the sun comes up and at least it will dry off the sidewalks. If you don't then they become an ice rink and that's not good either," said Knott.

But it's good for Reed Boysen who is clearing off his homemade ice rink. He said he spends a lot more time shoveling than he'd like.

"It never seems to end. I mean, you do it one day and it comes again,” Boysen said. “Last week, when it snowed for 40 hours straight, it wasn't much but you just had to keep at it."

Boysen said he also clears off multiple family properties and helps his neighbors when the snow falls on top of clearing it off his own property.

All of this snow and subsequent snow shoveling is a good thing for snow removal businesses. Several companies said they are seeing higher profits because of back-to-back snowstorms.

But for these men, they said they don’t shovel for themselves.

"I live in a really nice neighborhood where everybody takes care of their stuff and you can't be the only one who doesn't.

"I try to be nice to the mailman," Knott said.
