The snow that has slid down is about 8 foot deep, the shallowest snow is about 3 foot deep due to swirling winds. Official snowfall in Worcester MA (10 miles north of here) was 24".

Ah, the memories. . . ;~)
More like a nightmare... :)
I do not see any damage to the poly tunnel. Right?
Nope, no cracks, no leaks... but the storm highlighted a few pain points that need addressing, like the nylon string that holds the top cover over the ends stretches too easily, so I need to replace it with cable. Also I need to put pillars (15 foot 2x4's and some clever engineering) to support every cross beam from the floor to the highest point because the snow gathers up there and doesn't budge.
The weight of the snow after it gets rained on needs to be factored in. Yours is the strongest tunnel we have ever seen and we know of two others that failed, so it is important for us all to learn how you make yours work so well. You put a lot of thought into construction. Hope we can get together in warmer weather to see what is growing in side there! I know you are building down in the warm house basement during this cold season.
Or you need to coat the roof with this stuff!
That's some really cool stuff, Scott, just the price is a bit out of the park though. I've added some support poles making a bunch of "A" frames using 16' 2x4's and it's very sturdy now. (fingers crossed as the snow is falling fast again.. 18" and counting)
