Ice Storm

Postby Rollins Fan » Sat Dec 21, 2013 11:21 pm

Here in St Lawrence Co we have been getting freezing rain all day with heavier rain expected overnight. It was warmer in the Saranac Lake area; rain there. We have a travel ban in effect. This morning we had about 10 inches of snow on the ground before it started. I decided to take a layer of snow off the camper roof. I am careful and don't dig down to the roof. Hopefully, that was a good idea with 1.5 inches of ice expected. We still have power, but I expect we won't in the morning. We will use our camping skills to make coffee, and use the woodstove to cook and keep warm. Merry Christmas all from the frozen north.

Northern Fulton County here (south end of Route 30 inside the Blue Line. It never iced up here so we dodged the bullet, this time. We heard that Jefferson County got hit pretty hard. On the Thruway this morning, we saw quite a few electric company bucket trucks headed that way.

For safe removal of snow on the roof of your camper, get a Sno-Rake. It's a firm foam material and it can be removed from the handle and placed on an extension pole readily available at hardware stores. Lot's of options. http://www.snorake.com/

Happy Camping!

It looks like a good idea, but today, with the ice, I don't know what will work. Trying to break through to the bird seed, I couldn't break it with my hand! We have kept power so far, though. No sign of a thaw anytime soon. Hopefully, there isn't too much weight on the camper roof.
