    Snow finally slid off the roof of one of the garages.

    That was my worry. It's been raining today and stuff was getting heavy. I opened the attic and turned the heat on full blast to get some melt going on and it took about 3 hours and finally let go.

    Kinda gives you a new perspective of the ridiculous amount of power an avalanche coming down the side of a mountain can have, doesn't it? :D

    Even just that snow sliding off the roof had to weigh hundreds of pounds.

    A few weeks ago a guy up here went outside and disappeared. Wife looked for him all over town, police were called in etc. 3 day later they found him just outside the house. He was using a roof rake and the snow fell on him and buried him. Killed him there.
