Seeing as we've got a real, honest-to-goodness Blizzard Warning in effect, here's another warning: Don't do what this moron did. You've heard of road rage? Well, this guy suffered from a case of snow rage.

Here's the story: On Saturday night, 40-year-old Douglas Haskell of Lakeville, Massachusetts was outside, shoveling snow.

And as he worked on clearing his driveway and the narrow street in front of his house, a snowplow came through . . . and pushed the snow RIGHT BACK into the area in front of his house.  That's when his SNOW RAGE set in.

Douglas started yelling at the driver, the driver yelled back, and Douglas ended up hitting him in the HEAD with his SHOVEL.

The driver had a cut above his left eye, but didn't want to go to the hospital.  Douglas was arrested and charged with one felony count of assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
