    Default Snow in southern Oregon

    We get a few days every year like this. A few years back it froze and stuck around for a week. I know, rough (I did grow up in Wisconsin, though). It usually just gets to looking pretty...

    Hi Dave,
    Yes, I've read there was more your way while we were getting rain. The cold front seems to have dipped to us. No real problem as long as my wife gets home from work.

    BTW, it's been snowing steadily and is about 2-3 inches in town. Going to be some rough drives home!

    The closer I got to my house from work (moving east to west) yesterday the worse the roads and weather became. Started out on wet pavement, and ended up on packed snow. This morning's drive was all on ice, but after work the roads were all dry.

    Now the weather is saying snow tomorrow and Thursday.

    I think I need a job where I can work from home

    Ha! Why would someone feel the need to snowblow their roof?

    snow load can get too heavy, and then a roof caves in.

    in Redmond/Bend Oregon people have had to shovel their roofs this week as they got four feet of snow on Monday.

    After a long winter in Minneapolis, we learn to go into our detached garage by first testing the door. If the door seems stuck, open it slowly - just in case the roof collapses in.

    I guess I expected construction standards in heavy snow areas would account for that.

    Houses, yes. Detached garages, less so.
