At least the wind blew a significant portion of the snow off the roof. Curt had covered the rails with large tarps to prevent them from icing up during the storm. Yesterday he returned with a roof rake, cleaned off the snow and removed the tarps. Today it warmed up to above zero - not warm enough to melt anything - but another 4-8 inches of snow was forecast (thus, the gloomy sky in these photos.) The crew arrived early this morning to attempt to complete the installation before the snow started.
The second set of 12 panels were mounted within a couple hours.
