Tubob: Up On The Roof

I just got down off my complex cantilevered-peaked angled roof plane surfaces with my youngest, the six foot five TOWWSG son. It was a nighmarish job of breaking huge slabs of snow to send ripping over the edge plunging into huge detonating hits on the sidewalks, deck, and yard below. I got snow down my boots and down my butt and I was wearing Columbia ski pants and they got soaked. Standing near the vent pipes blasting methane gases generated by a household of huge men through melted holes in the 4 feet deep snowpack, I could scarcely maintain consciousness as the waves of sewer stink nearly overcame me and sent me sliding like some ungainly comatose walrus across an ice floe on some godforsaken frozen arctic hell-land/TUBOB.

Question: What part of winter 2008-09 have you struggled to deal with?
