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 !
Yikes, that is pretty scary. We sure are glad no one was hurt. Have a great Sunday.
Wow, we never would have thought of that happening. Be careful!
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!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
WOW! That is scary indeed 😮
We are sorry for Claire’s car, but glad nobody was hurt.
Good of you to check your house Zorro. Be careful!

Glad that no human or animal was hurt by the sliding ice.
Over at my place is the snow and ice long gone 🙂
Happy Easy Sunday !
MOUSES! Sure am glad it was the car which CAN be fixed. Cats and peeps would be harder to fix, I should think.
I am glad nobody got hurt!
whoa…loupi N zorro….way happee Claire iz aye oh kay N her wuz knot IN de car when this

Dad was thinking of this earlier this year when we had a big snow on the roof. Luckily our roof does not have any people or cars under the steep parts
EEK! So glad no one was hurt – and it’s a good thing you investigated to make certain!
