Tons of snow,   literally!,   on New Hampshire rooftops is turning out to be one of the big challenges to manage this winter for residents & businesses.
For some, snow removal has to be done manually.   Really hard work.   For others, coping with the snow that SLIDES off the roofs is where the big challenge lies.
We have a big barn.   I mean Really BIG.   About 180x90 feet in size.   It has a medal roof designed to not hold on to snow well.   That's a good thing...
However, instead of having to clear the roof, we get treated to some big "avalanches"...   Snow which slides off the roof, sometimes at impressive speeds, and deposits itself at the base of the barn and into the driveway that goes by the barn.
Some of these avalanches go right up to the windows...   The bigger ones completely cover the windows, significantly reducing the natural light in the barn while pressing snow against the window screens.
Another snowstorm.   Another roof slide.   Another digging out exercise.
Ayup.   New Hampshire style Morning Calisthenics.
