Yesterday when I was cleaning on the outside of the barn, I heard a very loud noise on the tin roof. I was quite startled for I had never heard that sound before. I went inside to try to sort out the sound. It took a few seconds to let this course through my brain that it was a massive load of snow leaving the roof and headed straight for me.
That could have been a most interesting outcome if the barrage of snow had not hesitated , giving me a few seconds to react. My husband said later that he would have come looking for me at some point. He reminded me that I needed to add a drinking straw to my overall's pocket inventory in case I was trapped under the snow. Hummm what a nice thought. The barn in the side photo is the one where I was working.
I have started thinking about avalanches in our lives? Do we have a warning and just not hear the oncoming?
