Look what the weather is doing here in Wyoming.

Took a couple of pictures of our HT 26.5 RLS this morning to show what happens when you get some snow and the temps are below freezing for a good portion of the last three weeks. Was surprised to see that we did have enough radiant heat to melt some of the snow on the roof.

Let's see if this works.

Fortunately, we aren't staying in the FW so I can't tell you if it would be habitable or not.

You might want to break those off. I wouldn't want that additional, continuous weight on my gutters.

They actually melted off yesterday. It really isn't that heavy, honest.

I noticed that there was one left on the spout, near the rear. However, I am a little concerned about breaking it off with the cold we have had. Afraid that the plastic will be too brittle and break when I hit the icicle. It's supposed to get up to around 20 or so today so the last one might go away as well.

Same thing is happening here in WI with warmer temps creating massive icicles everywhere, my Jayco is inside so no icicles on it though

I guess I have a little different perspective from my end... I have so much snow on my 5th that I can't even see the air conditioner any more, and the snow on the ground is almost up to the rear bumper.

Oh, and we just came out of a cold snap here where we were down to -46'C. went 6 days where it didn't get above -33'C (without the windchill)

Only about 4 months till camping season
