An unexpected spring danger

This post is also available in : French German Italian

Our friends of the blog Playful Kitty published a list of tips to approach the spring in complete safety. Further to a Claire’s recent misadventure, we wish to draw your attention on another spring danger : the melting of snow on the roof of houses, in particular in mountain.

The snow accumulated on the roofs of houses melts during day because of the sweetness of the temperatures by sunny weather, but freezes again partially at night. Big blocks of snow put on an ice sheet slide slowly along roofs eventually fall, and that can give that :

Claire was on visit at a friend in the mountain and she parked her car on one of the places in front of the house … You imagine if it were a cat or quite different living being ?
To avoid an accident, a responsible owner will pay attention to clear the snow from his roof, or to indicate clearly the incurred danger if it is not possible.

For Claire and her car, it is too late, but at home, I verified at once that we risk nothing !

    We have to watch when the snow melts as it sits over the outer door and Mum has to open a small window and knock it down before she will let us go outside!
