Hudson Valley Musing

Should you clean the snow off the roof of the house?

With winter approaching many people are looking forward to various winter sports.  My attention  turns to things such as will the snow plow work this year? Do we have enough shovels, hats, and gloves?

There is however one subject that has never been resolved so maybe you kind folks can weigh in on the matter.  My husband and I have disagreed on whether snow should be shoveled off the roof or not.  I believe it should be, my husband thinks the roof is better off if left as is.

Some years we have had so much now on the roof  that I worry about the roof caving in, I guess this is a normal reaction because I have seen on the news roofs that actually caved in.

I think a good snow rake would make the job easier, the only problem is who is going to get up on the roof to get the job done? Not me; I am afraid of heights, then again what if my husband goes up on the roof and then have a nasty fall? I guess this issue will never get resolved.

What would you suggest?
