    I went up on the roof today and shoveled the worst of the snow off. To say the least, it was deep. The remaining snow is less than 3 ft. deep so I left it for now. The hardest part was clearing the front walkway after getting the snow off the roof.

    Before and after pics.

    You have quite a collection up there. Good idea to get it off the roof. That's a butt-load of weight. I have a flat roof over the center 1/3 of my livingroom. I have to shovel up there too. Happy Winter! toolman

    if you had 1 of those light weight 2 stroke snow throwers with the rubber blades that would work great and if you fell atleast you wouldnt get hurt. last year i came off my 2nd story roof down threw my aluminum end table and chairs and tore them up and had a bruise that was all kinds of colors in a rainbow down my whole side, glad i didnt hit my head , you can only take so many hits there before lights out.

    Talk about banging your head against a wall. I just found out we are supposed to get another foot of the crap tonight and tomorrow with, you guessed it, high winds.

    We got our fair share of the white stuff here too. I'm more worried about the spring flood though as our neighbors to the south got a shit load as well and it all flows down hill (so to speak)!!

    Wow!!!!!!!! There is more up there then I thought there was Jack
    I am glad the building codes are deferent up there :read2:, There are homes here that would not hold up to that much snow........
    You take care up there, and for goodness sakes get a young gun up there that is smart enough to deal with it , or at least help if you can in :clock: before the next blast of snow hit's you .
    I am glad you are experienced at this. 8)

    Wheres all the kids in the neighborhood with their snow shovels looking to make extra $$$ when you need them??? Although with that much snow, you probably couldn't afford them!!! I was up shoveling my roof off a couple days ago for the satellite install we just got to upgrade from dialup!!! If I had as much snow as you have, I'd have probably waited till spring!! Take it easy up there please, we can't have you fallin' or over exerting yourself either!!! Geof

    Last nights storm gave us another 5 inches of heavy wet snow and it also rained for a few hours. This latest batch is the worst heart attack snow I have seen in years. Sure am glad I got the real deep stuff off of the roof yesterday.

    I live way out in the sticks so there aren't very many kids with shovels if any. Most kids nowadays don't want to get away from the video games anyway.

    All is good and I am just waiting for the SuperBowl to start.

    drive around and look for a snow man.

    I think finding a reindeer eating out of the palm of your hand is easier these days. Parents buy all these kids these video games and then complain the kids only sit in front of the tv all day.
