Snow Still on Panels!

Well, we had a big snowstorm Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. The snow slid off the main roof by midday Wednesday. Here's a picture of the front sidewalk after one of those avalanches:

And here's the main roof after that avalanche:

Pardon the interruption, but my new book is out!
