Rooftop snow removal 1

Ho, ho, ho!
There he goes.
Ho, ho, ho!
There he goes.

Rooftop snow removal, scrape
Up on the rooftop
Scrape, throw, scrape.

Rooftop snow removal, throw
Right through the snow with
Good Saint Minnesotan.

  1. This brings back the memories of having to clear off the roof in the frozen tundra. Something I do not miss doing – ha! Great Post and love how you did the captures:) Happy Week

    • I’ve never cleared snow from a roof as I don’t like heights. I hold the ladder and yell, “Be careful.” And then when the snow is off the roof, I shovel it away from wherever it should not be, like on the driveway and patio. The husband helps with that, too.

    That made me chuckle!!! Looks like we may be getting a bit more tomorrow but hopefully it is going to go south with the big storm. Keeping my fingers crossed. Love the effects on the photos!

  3. Hope the rooftop isn’t too steep – looks like dangerous work.

    We were in the Cities yesterday. Amazing amount of rooftop snow there. I would think there would be great risk for damage. We have a metal roof so it’s not an issue, thankfully!!!!

    Are you still shovelling snow? That must be a good way to burn calories. Spring is on its way I’m sure! xx

    That just looks dangerous to me. The cute captions made me smile 🙂

  7. No fun no fun, but necessary. I am sure there is a Dr. Seuss lyric somewhere in there as well. I do not like snow on the rooftop, Dan-I-am.

    My mouse froze on ‘there he goes.’ So I could only speculate for a while: does he do a luge off the roof? Glad to have full mouse function now and see your Post was only in praise of sainthood!

  9. Thread crazy Says:

    No way he could have done our roof – way too steep all way around house. Maybe we need to revisit that groundhog again and see if he’s changed his mind!
