That was a dismount even McKayla Maroney would have been proud of.

I laughed way too hard at that.

Perfect dismount. I love the shrug after he lands, he's all like "well... f*ck it then."

Now go shovel the other side.

I get the distinct impression this is one of those things people do to the new guy.

While a bit odd, you've got to admit that it's a pretty efficient way of clearing off the roof.  Although to do the other half he may want to go inside & bang on the underside of the roof to see if that will cause it to break loose like the front.

However the roof is neither hot, nor tin.

I don't speak their language, but I would bet his first words after landing were "I meant to do that."

"Christ. ever hear of a snow rake dipshiat?" was what I said a split second before shiat got real.

I fell off a snowy roof once...it wasn't nearly as graceful as that

to clear the roof of their house, my dad climbs up into the very peak of the great room and whacks the roof beams(single-piece 16" x20'+ timbers. these beams are MASSIVE.) with a sledgehammer  until he hears the 'whhhhhumph' outside.

then he clears from in front of the doors and garages and calls it good.

/mom wouldn't let him do it the way he WANTED, which was to use one of the long pruning poles to shove a lit M-80 under the snow.

The great room?  Do you live at Hogwarts?

it's the old term for single LARGE rooms, open all the way to the ceiling/roof. they were often treated as common/gathering areas in larger houses.

in the case of the old house, it runs from over the garage/old carriage house(now attached) all the way over and ends at what used to be the north side of the original house. the roof underside accessible by the great room is nearly 3/4 of the total roof of the house, now.

it's a cool old room, not just for the size of it, but the stone floor(put in somewhere in the early 1900s, it used to be a sunken storage area for firewood and hay for the horses in the carriage house), the history, and the fireplace big enough to roast a medium hog in.

Well, he landed on his feet, but only because smacking his head on the roof as he fell turned him around.   So that seems like a bit of good news/ bad news.

He was probably too amped up to feel it right away, but that'll smart later.

I had never heard of a snow rake till you mentioned it.

Kinda scary that a patroller wouldn't expect that to roofalanche.

Or you could just leave all of that lovely insulation where it is. I doubt it was going to collapse anything on a roof like that..

/although the insulation must be pretty good already, or else the snow would have melted.
