snow would be just as bad, considering that an inch of rain can make 10 inches of snow. But this would be a slushy snow, so less than 10 inches per
inch of rain. Heavy wet snow turns into ice pretty easily.
Exactly. And if it is slushy heavy snow, you have to be aware that many roof systems were not designed to take the weight.
So if its warm, and starts snowing, and it keeps snowing and adding up, be aware of the roof your under, and GTF out.
Gymnasiums, flat roofed quansets, anything with a roof pitch of less than 6/12 (6 feet of drop for every 12 feet of length) you need to be cognizant
