Much of the country got slammed by snow this past week, which means lots of us had to break out our shovels for the first time this season. For some, it didn't go so well.

When there's snow on the ground, that often means hidden ice and harsh winds and all manner of other weather conspiring to make it ever more difficult to shovel that stuff the heck out of the way. Let's give these people a break. Snow-shoveling season is just getting started for most of us, so don't laugh too hard at the misfortune of others. It may soon be you finding yourself on your backside laying on a sheet of ice you didn't even know was there.
