restless fingers of ice

have plucked the slate right off our roof.

who was standing,
at the time,
on a very tall ladder)

Looks like Mr. BC will be up there again soon doing some repair work. Ya, ice dams can be devastating to roofs and ceilings. We had our share this winter too.

Is it dangerous?
Well, I guess Mr. Brattcat has work to do know!Please take care!

So, ice does that? Not wind? Good ole mr. brattcat to the rescue. . .

Sharon said...

Oh, that can't be good. Looks like some roof repair is on the horizon.

Good old New England winters! We had our share of roof damage too, not to mention the minor waterfall in the living room!
Be carefull Mr. BC.

Mr Brattcat lives dangerously it seems.

When this happened to me in Quimper, it started raining in.

Amin said...

I agree with all these comments...It is dangerous ...

Amin said...

Thank you very much for your beautiful comments about my country.

Ohhhh, I hope that Mr. BC will be very careful and remember that he does not have 9 lives and should be careful on a tall ladder while holding a camera!

(I love the look of a slate roof)

Bises,

Glorious winter!

We have no ice fingers, but there are plenty of ice dams in the neighborhood. Be careful, Mr. Brattcat...and you on the ground, Brattcat.

Oh my!

Bob Crowe said...

Yikes! Pas moi, as Virginia might say. I don't do roofs. Or windows.

Jack said...

Mr. Brattcat is very brave (and maybe a bit foolish). That looks like a very steep roof. BE CAREFUL!

Paula said...

Hooray for brave Mr Brattcat!

Elenka said...

Ugh, that doesn't look good. Can't even imagine how you repair something like that.
Good luck, Mr. B. If anyone can fix that, I know he can.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Oh, oh! That doesn't look good. And Mr. Brattcat needs to be careful...ladders are dangerous things.

We've had no roof damage due to ice this year. Whew!
