    Horrifying!  It’s like something out of a Stephen King novel.

    My parents live in Trumbull, CT. Grew up there. The last time they were in the news was when they won the Little League World Series. I imagine they won’t be mentioned again for another few decades.

    “Snow who?” “Snow one at the door!”

    The poor dog! (Butt visible in first picture.)

    “Mommy, where am I supposed to go potty?!”

    Who’s there?

    “Just some drifter.”  *rimshot*

  6. Sweet jesus, here I was thinking we were getting hit hard in Utah! I hereby revoke all past winter complaints, and will take it upon myself to chide any who complain about our little flurries here.

    With rain on the way Monday, it’s not the snow at the door New Englanders should be worried about, it’s the snow on the roof.

      That is very very true.

      We eventually had some heating lines installed.

      Can you explain why?  The danger of it falling off?

      (It’s unusual to get more than about 3-5cm of snow here.)

      I would have thought lots of it being melted plus the rain would be more of a problem (flooding).

        Two reasons: First, water weighs a lot, and snow is made of water. Especially wet snow, such as snow with a layer of rain mixed in. Roofs can collapse (apparently there have already been two cow fatalities this weekend due to barn collapses.)

        Also, too much melting snow on a roof can create ice dams, where ice gets in the way of drainage and the water instead finds new ways to flow downward (generally under shingles and through walls.)

        We have a gently-sloped roof on a part of our house, and shoveled most of the snow off yesterday to avoid this sort of thing.

    The home in the picture belongs to Jennifer Buchanan, according to Science Friday’s Feb 9 post on their Facebook timeline (/scifri)

    Neither had a storm door installed?

    “Snow Who?”

    “Snow way your’re going out THAT door!”

    Carbon monoxide disaster waiting to happen….especially with no electricity to run air circulation fans. Heck of a job, Barry!

    Ops! Well, I said the ChiComs would own us when hell freezes over…

  13. Jean Baptiste says:

    I don’t believe I’ve ever seen fallen snow, even in very high drifts, compacted quite so tightly as this…

  14. Manel says:

    So, was the dog able to go outside and take a piss or what?
