The Villages Florida Area Real Estate: This Gives New Meaning to a Covered Porch

This Gives New Meaning to a Covered Porch

This Gives New Meaning to a Covered Porch

Believe it or not, it was another snow day here in Cheshire, Connecticut!  Really school was called this time because of ice that was scheduled to accumulate after 3-4 inches of snow that fell overnight.  With two feet of snow still hanging around from the last storm and an ice storm on the way, it was time to bring out the roof rake (maybe having great attic insulation isn't that good an idea) and also shoveling off the back porch. 

As you can see from my "pet portrait" below, their was already a nice cover of ice going on . . .

Looks pretty cold, Chris. And being from southern California, I have no idea what a “roof rake” is. To scrape snow off your roof?

Hi James - Not feeling too much enjoyment right now.  : )

Hi Bill - Yes--with a very long handle.  I posted about that, too, this evening.  Honestly, even though I grew up in Connecticut and lived in many snowy places, today was my first experience with a roof rake.

Hi Chris - looks like you enjoyed lots of snow. The only thing we use a roof rake for is to get the pine needles off our roof :)

Chris,

Sounds like the weight of the snow is heavy on your heart. Take care of yourself and enjoy the quiet moments as best as you can.

Hi Toni - Not sure "enjoyed" is the word I would use.  : )  Sounds like you have a much better use for your roof rake!

Hi Patricia - The snow is weighing heavy on many people's hearts in Connecticut (and the Northeast) right now.  It doesn't have a chance to melt before the next new batch rolls in . . . .

Thanks for your concern.  : )
