Potential Ice Storm

We are once again in a part of the season where freezing rain is a potential threat.

The freezing rain itself is not the threat, even if there is a lot, since at a certain point, if there is enough ice, it would become self supporting

Where the potential risk comes, if the temperature would fall and the ice would really freeze to the cover, snow would not be able to slide off the structure. To prevent this from happening, take a few minutes to gently bump the cover to remove the ice.

To prevent this from happening, take a few minutes to gently bump the cover to remove the ice.

The critical thing to remember when bumping the cover is to ALWAYS start at the top and work down. This way the lower ice will “protect” the cover when the higher ice is sliding down.

The sooner this process is done, the smaller the job will actually be.

Good luck!
