Yesterday we talked about the fact that typically one cubic foot of snow weighs about twenty pounds. Yesterday’s photograph showed you a gentleman up on his roof shoveling off what we estimated to be two feet of snow. Or, each square foot of snow weighed about forty pounds. Each square foot of snow then had a total weight of an estimated 60,000 pounds of snow on a 46’ Ranch House.
Look at today’s picture. This young man is shoveling what looks like one foot of snow off his roof.
