Will you shovel my driveway? My city?


Probably not.

I have been known by the hashtag #shoveltunde on occasion. I love snow. I love suiting up and weathering the elements. And a good blizzard brings out the extremist good samaritan in me. Several times in NYC I've headed out into the whiteness and pushed cars and moved frozen water.

The most epic moment occurred in Chicago where I happened to be in the right place at the right time with just the right amount of crazy to clear an exit ramp on Lakeshore Drive. Here's a video of my TEDxMidwest talk through that journey. 

But as for me coming to your city and shoveling your driveway, I doubt it. There's only so much ground one man and one shovel can cover. What we need is a movement: many people, many shovels. And one of those people, well, it could be you.
