Today, the preschool roof collapsed due to heavy snow accumulation. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
Children were rushed immediately out of the building and walked over to the middle school which is a short distance from the preschool.
The roof of this building was installed in 1957 and was built to cover a flat roof underneath. It was this inner flat roof that protected the building from further damage and students from injury.
The gaping hole is about 25 to 35 feet in width and scary to behold, especially since damage could have been much worse. Weston walks over to this school each afternoon where I pick him up in the parking lot.
Heavy snow accumulation is taking its toll on our town and its residents. Tempers seem shorter as folks deal with what's being called "Snow Rage". Driving is difficult as many of the roads have high snowbanks and narrow pathways. All of us are scrambling to have the snow removed from our roofs before the next storm hits on Saturday. All three schools have canceled classes for tomorrow.
I am ready for spring!
