Ice Monster
« on: February 27, 2013, 08:30:05 PM »
This is the snow/ice coming off the shop, I have never seen it hang on SOOO long before. :o

 
 

 
 

 
That's my brother Fred he's about 6' and his hat is touching, the side walls are 10' with an energy truss that puts the snow overhang at 4'6" :o
 

 
The roof overhang is 2' and the icicles are touching in the middle.
If it can't be nailed or glued then screw it

We've had the same weather here, lately.

I'm always sure it's coming thru the windows  :o

I think I'd go inside the shop and fire up the wood stove!

That's a lot of overhang.

Seem like last winter a guy was shoveling his roof off,it had steel on it. It started to come off when he was on it, he got buried by the snow.

Yes I would tell Fred to get out of there. We had the same thing here a couple years ago and it came down with a whoopf. It took a lot of digging to get to the doors again.
