Perilous snow

Day after day of the snow blowing over the same side of the house and we ended up with this.... this..... this snow thing hanging off the edge of the roof. A snow eave you might call it. Spark has had his eye on it for the last few days and this afternoon he just couldn't take it anymore. He went out to the barn and came back with a hoe which he lifted above his head and started randomly whacking at the snow.
. First he knocked off all the snow parts which I worried was going to land on his head where the snow would then start slowly melting down his back and he would for sure be howling. Thankfully that didn't happen.

Next he just had to get those icicles down. Thankfully he didn't take an eye out when they fell like shattered glass.

I went back in the house thinking he was all done. I hear this thumping on the side of the house so I poke my head back out the door to see him swinging at the few little icicles left on the gutter. Each time he took a swing the hoe bumped on the side of the house. Thankfully he didn't take out a window. Guess what his farmers' market money this summer would have been spent on if that had been the case?
