I bet no Texan has to done that

Just finished raking my roof this morning. Parts of the roof had over 2 feet of snow on it and we had problems with ice dams before and with temperatures warming up.

Raking? You should get a snow blower for that job. Just kidding. In fact my snow blower has a warning to not use it on roofs. I wonder why? What possibly could go wrong?

I was on a conference call when the maintenance staff came to rake the ends of the roof and break off the icicles.   I felt like the house was being attacked until I realized what it was.

This is how they clear the roof of snow in Tyler Texas.

Kinda like a standing desk, lower it to make it more accessible.

Really??? You had to take your roof??? Everyone up here had to do it the past two winters, but I've only seen one this winter.....and I chuckled.

The chains on the snowblower are ruff on the shingles

Chains?  How old is your snowblower?  Mine is 25 years old and has tires that will chew through any snowdrift.

I don’t have to rake my roof but I do have to deal with these after the gutters fill with ice.
