It's a new experience for Damien Jones. He and his brother are helping dig out their grandma's house.
"I think it's a good experience," their grandmother, Vaniece Crawford says. "This is the first time they've seen this much snow!"
They're young and strong, and there's not that much driveway and sidewalk to clear. The young men say it's no big deal.
"I just shovel however it comes--however I can get it done," Jones says.
But let's face it, this isn't Minnesota. Kansans are not used to shoveling this much snow. If you're not careful you could find yourself shoveling a path straight to the emergency room.
A man in his 40s collapsed and died after shoveling outside a Northeast Wichita business.
Chiropractor Blake Baty says shoveling is a lot more hazardous than it looks.
"You're doing a lot of upper body," Baty says. "It's taking a lot for your body to have to pump that blood and get it going. So if you've been sedentary for most of the winter it can put into cardiac arrest or create some cardiac issues."
Baty says even if you're an active person, this just isn't an activity people in Kansas are used to doing.
Vaniece Crawford played it smart.
"Those old muscles--we don't use them like we used to when we were young," Crawford says. "I tried shoveling yesterday but it began to pull on my back a bit and I decided, well, I probably ought to stop here."
And she turned the job over to her grandsons, who even at their age might be a little stiff and sore tomorrow.
