Last Saturday we spent the whole day raking snow off of the roofs, shoveling the decks, shoveling away raked snow, etc.
I actually got up on the roof of my studio and shoveled it off. I was a little nervous -- I wasn't sure how I was going to get a ladder close to the roof... but then by the time I raked off the first couple of feet, the snow was piled so high by the corner that I just stepped up from the pile of snow directly onto the roof!
Then it snowed again on Tuesday so we did it all again. Then it sleeted, snowed, and iced on Wednesday. So we did it all again. So far we have had two very minor leaks that we have been able to take care of...
Ian and I are exhausted and sore. And they are predicting another 3-6 inches tomorrow and then a bigger storm late next week. Enough, already!
