Listen to what your house is telling you. In 77 I bought a house. That winter, the south half of the house was covered with many ft of snow. Wind came out of the north. The house was talking big time, all kinds of weird sounds. I got on roof with shovel and pushed the snow off.

Many houses, that year had there roof's collapse, especially flat roofs, roofs with many layers of shingles, pole barns with metal roofs, trusses on 8 ft.

Is your house talking to you?

Over the night I heard a few creek sounds, It could have been the window frames making noises, I dunno. I will be raking snow off later today.

I have not seen snow this deep in one dumping since the blizzard of 77/78. I was an young school kid then.

Blizzard of 77/78 is the one that I was talking about too. Not sure if we didn't got more snow this time. However the snow of 77/78 was a dryer snow that drifted more. I have pics of this year's wet snow sticking to trees. Looks like larger than softball sized snow balls on trees.
