Winter time

We get a lot of snow here in the snow-belt ... off the eastern end of the Great Lakes.  Just in the past few days we've probably had a foot and a half of snow on top of two feet already on the ground.  It was building up on the roof, so I used a snow rake today - probably 3 to 4 hours out there pulling snow off the roof.  I don't get on the roof to shovel off the snow - I'm too clumsy.  But I've hired it done in the past when it got really bad - and I know you always start at the top and work your way down - the deeper snow gives you a foothold because the shoveled portion of the roof gets VERY slippery.  Don't do it like this guy...
