It got all the way up to 40 degs with 35 mph winds last night! That is the warmest I have seen it in many months. Bet the roads are muddy this morning. Mark H.

I hope your right, I am tired of hibernating. I need the sunshine and the warm breezes, please be right! My toes are cold as we speak.

high winds here too mid 40,s , raining hard, suppose to cool down some tomorrow, sure is nice now though, kind wish the wind would slow down a bit got one more roof to clean off,got tin on it 4in 12 pitch but it don,t slide , old tin must be the reason ,it must loose something when it gets old ,but then again i guess we all do lol.

I find if we have some melt and re/freeze the snow will freeze onto the screws on 4/12 pitches. I have never had those problems on my 6/12 roofs just the 4/12 porch roof. I have to clear it once in a while because the upper roof will drip down onto it and the water will freeze to the screws under the snow. Mark H.

your right on mark ,thats what is happening here i have a roof above it 5in 12 and it slides the one below it is about 4.5 in 12 and it doesn,t , must be like you said, i been trying to figure it out even waxed it last fall still doesn,t slide , i just added this addition two years ago this is the second winter, when i was up there today i was thinking about raising it this summer, but maybe i,ll just try some heat under it.sure is blowin here now at 4.30 snowing hard too.

well if you're warm it must be heading our way mark - it was about 30 below just before 6 this morning so i stoked the stove real well - nicely got it going and bam, the power went out! so i bundled up again, started the big van which had been plugged in and closed the throttle on the stove. we sat chatting under candles for an hour til it got restored. boy i tell ya, those powerline guys who hang around in baskets and play with high voltage, they earn their $40/hour! :)

Those who complain about the power not coming on fast enought should spend a day or two in a bucket truck fixing over head cables during a bad storm then they would not rush them in there job! That is a lot of work and dangerouse to for the pay. I cut a couple ditches in the ice build/up with hot water out of the water heater to give the runoff a place to go as we are melting. I cleaned out my drain pipe with the hose too. Sure works good with 125 deg water coming out the end of a hose as you push it thru the pipe. Mark H.
