I just ... walked back into my office after running some errands. It's time for me to get back to work on our taxes, not exactly my favorite chore. :) As I poked the woodstove fire back to life, there was a loud rumbling (and I knew what was coming!) and then an enormous whoompa! as a ton or so of wet snow slid off the second story roof of my barn and down onto the first story. The entire barn shakes when that happens, including (to my surprise) the concrete floor of the first story. The trusses are holding, though, much to my relief. I'm a bit surprised that there aren't visible “dents” in the first story roof from these falls!
