Sunday in My City



Happy Sunday..... Super Bowl Sunday!! 
Congrats Mami on your new bundle of joy!!

Today in my city this is what we will be doing...
 Raking the snow off our roof...I guess that's what they do here!
Why 

Images from HERE
Not our roof but you get the picture....we have so much snow and the gutters are full of thick ice and icicles. We are starting to have some damage. So pre game activities today snow raking! Woot Woot!

Get out of here! We have never raked the snow off our roof! I think that must mean you have SO much more snow than us!

Sonya said...

Brrh! Hopefully, you will not get any more snow storms like that one.

Enjoy your day! :)

i RAISE MY HAND, THAT'S FOR SURE. LOL (sorry bout the caps!) We've never used a roof rake but really need to get one. The hubs goes up there and shovels from time to time. This has been a sorta rough winter. I think.

Tezzie said...

Yep...shovelling snow from the roofs is standard practice here :D

And, I LOVE that cartoon...perfect for us here in Finland!

Hope you have a great Superbowl Sunday, and a fabulous week! (and, btw, I love that Valentine's themed banner you've made...especially the snow heart; lovely <3)

We have had to rake the snow off of the roof... but something weird going on here... It feels like SPRING here in Norway..
Love your new header!

A friend of mine is snowed in in Vermont - I've never seen that much snow!!!

Joanna Jenkins said...

BABY!?!?!? Mami had her baby???? Really :-) I gotta get on Facebook and Twitter!!

You've had more than your fair share of snow. I'm raising my had for you.

Cheers, jj

Wow! You're right -- our one inch of fun is a lot different than having to scrape your roof!

Still beautiful, however.

Happy Sunday!

That cartoon is perfect!

Raking snow??? Is it a term used to remove the snow from the roof? We still have no snow and I have predicted that we will not have anymore this year!! We are done. Now everybody are watching and waiting to see if I am right...:D :D

Eva said...

We had much weather related maintenance around here this weekend too. It warmed up a bit and rained so some of the ice in the gutters melted, thankfully. There is still plenty but its nice to know that it can melt!

Thanks for the love.

That's a thick layer of snow! I love winter but I loathe having to rake off layers of snow in the roof. But if we ignore it, we're in for a more roof disasters. There is an alternative like heat cables, but only few were lucky to have it work for long time.

Jeez, that's like a good 15 inches thick of snow! Be careful in scraping it, you might scratch your roof and create potential damage. Also, watch out for ice dams – the damage it could bring will blow your pocket.

Winter is lovely, but the household problems along with it aren't so attractive – like frozen pipes and ice dams. You can only winter proof your home by insulating and ventilating, specially the roof as it absorbs all the snow and temperature and protect you from the weather.
