I hope this is not how my whole winter will go.  Snow removal seems to run days together.  Tonight we are getting rain maybe lots and lots of rain and then some will have major icy event.  Trees will be lost as well as homes and cars they fall onto.  Our state has called in help from the states south of us as they prepare for the worst one of which could be no power come Christmas morning.  So many states face this year after year and we do every 5 to 8 years  and it is so sad to see very few real old trees in the landscapes.

OK time for some photos so you can see where I spend time each day. 

Upon climbing up and across the roof I am met with this.  Heat Loss?  I would say by the looks of this, the job paid for to insulate the whole house, may not have been done as well as it could have been. The propane I heat with is selling for over $4.00 a gal. last I want it to do is exit the home .

Wow I am getting quicker at this or there was less snow this time.  I did the whole roof in 2 hours first time and this time 1 1/2 hours.

See the flat roof and the small pitch roof any snow on them and warm weather or rain like tonight would act like a sponge and cause the roof to collapse.  The insurance company would not pay to repair if I di not do my part.  I wish I had won some of that jackpot to raise the roof and cover it with metal.  OH well I will keep the shovel close by .

This is the way down!

Since I blog I take the camera up with me in a bag all wrapped up soon I will need a structure up there to shoot from all year long.  I love the views from there just wish I was not on ice.

A Eagle flew over me but I had a shovel and not the camera in my hand so I missed that one but here are some of the views from the roof as I cleared it off.

See 10:00 AM not a drop of water on my land by 2:00 PM they had opened the dam AGAIN and washed away more of my land.
Never ending battle I think.  Maybe I will sell this place in a few years and buy a one bedroom condo by the ocean where it is warm.

Are you all done shopping and making your desserts for Christmas?  We will see my Mom on Monday and then on Christmas walk in the woods out back or a pretty winter beach.
