The Shapes of Snowflakes – Inforgraphic

The Shapes of Snowflakes

Love it or hate it, for most of us, winter means lots of the white stuff, and with Punxsutawney Phil predicting six more weeks of winter for us this morning, we might be in for more of it.  It’s well known that no two snowflakes are ever identical, but did you know that snow came in so many shapes and sizes?  Today’s infographic from Compound Interest runs through all the different varieties and shapes of snowflakes.  Get your shovels ready!.  [VIA]

Shoveling Snow Like a Pro — Infographic

Shovel Snow Like a Pro

Forget “winter is Coming” — Winter is HERE!  I know in South Jersey this weekend, I was out shoveling a bit of the white stuff (about 6 inches worth) and up and down the East Coast and across the rest of the country many had to do the same.  Have you ever thought about how to make things easier on yourself though?  Today’s infographic gives you some tips and tricks to make clearing the driveways and walks a little easier.  We want to make sure we’re doing this the right way, as shoveling is quite the workout and can lead to serious health issues if we’re not careful.  Unless you’re this guy — he’s got it down! [VIA]
