KXLY 4 News: Roof collapses


Here's a clip from the local TV in Spokane, Washington. It's a great example of small-market news, good but not quite as polished as the networks. But the point is a good one. Snow accumulation, especially as it becomes wet (with rain in the case of Spokane), can be dangerously heavy.

Fortunately things seem to be OK on Aspö. I chatted with Margaret and she said Janne and their son Callan went out this weekend to dig out their house. All was well, but the snow was up to the windows, and it took many hours to clear off the deck and steps. Then to make matters worse, Janne's car was under three months of snow at Stavsnäs. She said her men came home tired and sweaty that night!
