Sparky: Shoveling Roof, Farm Style

Sparky: So my husband is a farm kid. For those of you that are farm kids you know that you can do anything from the tools or crap you have around the house. Hubby just backed up his pickup full of show. He put an old dining table on top with the base down and jammed into the bed then he took the 6 foot ladder and jammed it between the table and the side of inside of the pickup. I banged on the side of the house for me to come out and hold the table down then up he went. I am a little impressed in the midst of the fear-fest. Of course, I am the one that falls in snow bank not once but twice trying to get to his darn truck. While the pain in my butt stood on top of the roof shoveling snow at me. Hubby told me that there is about fourteen or sixteen inches on one end of the house and over four feet on the other. I guess he was right to get up there but …

Question: Have you shoveled your roof? Or do you plan to shovel your roof soon?
