What were the trusses rated for as far as dead load and live load, (snow) Do you have load bearing walls in the interior of the house? Around here code calls for a combined working load of 60#/sqft. That is free span. Your issue would be the size of the material in the trusses. All 2x4 construction or do they have 2x6 material in them.
If you have room particions running perpendicular to the trusses, and fairly close to the center support beam in your celler, to transfer some of the load down to beam and columns, I wouldn't get too conserned.

Yes, I have walls running perpendicular to the trusses, All 2x4 construction. The house was built 16 years ago and there have been snow falls of large amounts, just not as big as now. Thanks for calming my fears. I will rake some snow tomorrow off the roof.

I would get some of the weight off sence they are 2x4s on 2 foot centers, One side of my house has a 5/12 pitch and I used 2x6s on 12" centers and the other side of roof is steeper and its 2x6s on 16" centers never worry about snow on roof.
