"Roof Ice....."

We've had one loud crash caused by the sliding of ice down and breaking off from the roof, but we seem to be headed towards another episode.  Luckily, the crash took place prior to our going to bed for the night as it was quite LOUD!  These photos from this morning, show the next section poised "over the edge" waiting for the next time we have warmer temperatures.  The break between the end of the house and ice closer to the porch is due, I believe, to the skylight in the main floor bedroom.


A slightly different and unclose view of the ice......


This is a view of the opposite end of the porch.  You'll also notice our "skating rink" driveway and parking space.  The warmer temperatures have melted the snow left behind from Don's snow blowing  and caused a VERY smooth and slippery surface.  Admittedly, it is a challenge to walk out to the garage........but I also admit, it is comical to watch, too.  ;)

I know it can be inconvenient and dangerous at times, but your yard and view are soooo beautiful. I loved living on the snowline in Camino and Pollock Pines, CA, and hope to live in a similar place again. :)

I love how the leaves are perfectly stuck in the bottom layer of snow as it slides down...

This would be so beautiful, if only it wasn’t that dangerous. It’s quite the weather we’re having, eh? Why do you think the skylight was the cause of the break? And yeah, I also love how the leaves are stuck just at the end of the frozen ice. Talk about nature making art. Haha!
