Exit… roof left

I visited Tanya yesterday to watch the season four premier of Battlestar Galactica and arrived before she did. It’s always interesting to go out there because it’s completely quiet. Quiet of human sounds, that is. I got out of the car and listened. All I could hear was a woodpecker in the distance, my own breathing, and the sound of the blood circulating in my ears. I’m almost never in such a quiet circumstance as when I go to her place in the winter.

While I was out of the car, I happened to notice the show-loading on the roof of her wood shed:

The roof is metal, smooth, and angled so as you can see, the snow is exiting the roof quicker than it would by melting. It’s gone as far as it will go however, because the leading edge is spiked into the snow on the ground. ‘On the ground’ feels like the wrong wording to use given that its top is at least a metre above the ground!

    Technically, that is roof right, viewer left. 🙂

    How can you be sure I’m not behind the shed?!

    It would appear that your show-load is snow-boating! Ha! Ha!
