US extreme winter 2014: Ice fall on parked car in Winsted Connecticut – March 13 2014

This photo was posted by Amanda Hubbard from Winsted, Connecticut on The Weather Channel’s Facebook page. It features her car smashed by huge chunk of ice and snow fell from her apartment building’s roof.

Horror! Imagine if it had fallen on children! Yesterday, a driver was hit by a falling ice chunk in Chicago:

Keep this in mind:

A cubic foot of water weighs 62.4 pounds, a foot of snow with a 10:1 snow-to-water ratio sitting on a 1,000-square-foot roof weighs 6,240 pounds. So it’s pretty heavy!

And I would say, it’s worth to keep your roof clear of snow and ice all winter, or hire a crew to clean it off before the spring thaw loosens large chunks.

Take care!
