As nice as it can be to see snow falling—especially if it gets you the day off—there’s no doubt that many a snow day has been ruined by the unenviable task of having to shovel your driveway. Not only can it be difficult and time-consuming, but it can do a great deal of damage to your back.

Luckily, YouTube user L Kanavaros has a solution. All you need is an ordinary snow shovel and a length of rope!

Even the best snow shovels can’t save you from aching back pain.
