A Trio on a Thin Tin Roof

There has been many snow related accidents this winter. A few weeks ago many roofs started to collapse all over the country.Tennis halls, old barns and more. Not surprising as we've had around one meter of snow in the last 10 weeks. So everywhere you look these days there's people up on the roofs working hard to remove all the snow to prevent further accidents. Like here on a garage roof at Nederstaleden in Västerhaninge. The hard working trio told me that it was a very thin roof here, and that can't be very good. The young woman who is on her way up onto the roof, via the tractor on the first photo, was afraid of heights but she had to overcome that fear on this occasion.

Too bad for all the problems it is causing but that snow looks so beautiful...so clean

So much snow! Incredible. Our daughter and husband in Colorado had their house built with a very steep slope so the snow would slide off...it works well, usually.

That's one problem we don't have here.

People don't realize the incredible weight of all that snow, especially if it gets wet.

This man is able to detect a nice girl from afar, even in a snow shoveling crew!

What a scary problem! We definitely don't have it here, only hurricanes which sometimes just blow the whole roof off.

That's a lot of snow and it doesn't seem to be melting despite the sunny weather!

This is very impressive - so clean, so white, and - so heavy! No more complaining about snow is allowed from anywhere else until they look at this picture!

A flawed construction from the outset when a roof in Sweden can't take some snow.
