In Chicago we got 20 in of snow. In the attached picture there is 1 ft of snow against the garage door, then it slopes down to bare pavement then up to a 3 ft drift. Some places in my driveway had alomost 4 ft of snow.

I hope you guys are OK, and the snow doesn't do too much damage to anything.
Here in Saskatooon we haven't had anything like Chicago, but we have had quite a bit of snow - enough that I decided since I have a low-slope pitch on my roof, I should shovel it off. It probably would have been OK, but I was worried that if we had another big dump of snow, it would become a big problem that I would have to deal with immediately. It was about 18" deep, and took me two whole afternoons to clear it off, mostly because I had to move all of it to the front of the house before throwing if off. I should be good for the rest of the winter now.

arandall. I hear you,here in alberta, my neighbors barn attachment collapsed about two weeks ago because of the snow we have been getting, normally it averages so snow hasn't been a problem but his year I swept the snow off the roof(ranch style) and then had to go back up about two weeks later and do it after a snowfall again and in a small building we have layers(hens) in, a small garage I have a tractor in collapsed also, go figure?
It was more for ice dams damaging the gypsum inside when the snow melts and refreezes the water has no place to go.
