I'm ready for spring . . .

I'm ready for spring . . . But I guess I'll have to wait. We have a bit of snow here in Colorado. That should make the golfers in Phoenix (Vegas, LA, etc) happy. - Roy

Good grief!
You've got a ski jump in the making there.

This reminds me of a thread at the beginning of winter, when some of the folks from the snow country were lamenting tha fact that they hadn't received much if any snow.
I wonder if they feel the same today?

Beautiful photo though.

You may want to stick a bottle of liquid refreshment in that snow, take another picture and add it to the March photo contest. Now that would be, uh, cool.

Very True . . . but I'll wait it out in a not too distant land where the soil is red and dryer than a martini.

Looks like a buddies Bambi up in Crested Butte a few months ago, but with more wind.

Come to think of it, what's it going to look like after today and tonights snow??

I'm not even thinking about digging mine out . . . Though the snow is uniformly distributed, I am a little concerned about the weight pushing the panels in a bit. In reality I think the snow solidifies as sort of a solid mass, as opposed to something like sand that (hypothetically speaking) would probably deform the weakest/unbraced areas of the aluminum...I hope I'm right.

WOW! rfield! That is some drift. My wife saw it and told me I had to stop whining about winter. It got up to 40 today, can summer be far behind?

So, could you, like, put on some snow shoes and tromp up to the roof to do a bit of work, if necessary?

Seriously though, I feel for you. Ugh.
