This is the after photo.
We measured between 5-6 feet of new snow. Not unusual for us this time of year but the most we have ever received in one storm prior to this was between 4 - 5 feet. Not bad for 15 winters I'd say. This time however we got right at 6 feet of extremely heavy snow over two days. It was hard to measure because it was the most heavy snow I had seen and it kept compacting down. What I measured was a little over 5 1/2 feet but that could be wrong as like I said it kept compacting down.
We were fortunate that we received such little damage from it also. The small section of roof over the door to under the house had one cross member that shifted down under the weight about an inch. Jack it back up and a couple nails and it will be good as new. The vent stack on the side of the house had a bracket screw sheared off and I have already replaced it. It took longer to snow shoe to the other side of the house than fix the bracket.
Then late on day three when we finally uncovered the vehicles and got the three feet of snow/slush off them we found that the snow weight had cracked the window on our truck. As soon as the roads dry up where we can get out we will have that replaced. The nearest Safelite is in Pueblo about a two hour drive one way so it looks like that will have to wait until a couple other things can be done first.
It took four days to get the driveway cleared and the vehicles cleaned off, as well as finish up on the rest of the snow. Lots of heavy shovels of snow to get out but if we had to now we could get out. According to my calculations we received 320" of snow this snow season (so far) and we hope it is done. Our average is 264" and we should be pretty good for water shed now. The weather lady said usually 10" of snow equals 1" of water but this snow was so wet it was more like 5-6' of snow equals one inch of water.
Hope that is the last storm of the season and we will get back to normal soon. But ya never know for sure, we could get another storm or more up until mid June. I'd consider with the extreme weight of the snow that we did pretty good. We built strong and the only damage was easily fixed.
