Everyone in NE Ontario has a snow story

Mine is that we've had knee-deep snow. On the roof.

(This is not actually my house. Ours was worse before we cleared it.)


  1. And that is why we have a roof rake! My father, who grew up in the northern reaches of Minnesota, swears by two-story houses in climates such as ours, remembering when he was a boy clambering out of the second story windows to shovel a path to the front door. . . .

  2. I don't think a roof rake would have made any impact on the hardpacked snow on our roof.
