    I was doing well but have had snow for about a week now. I've been telling people that if I have to walk on the roof I can't do the job.

    Phone is still ringing and apparently other people are still working...

    But I just don't see me walking on snow covered roofs.

    I've worked with snow on the ground, but using ladders on grass only. and doing front soffits and gutters only. sometimes you do what you gotta do. but I am not getting on any snowy or icy roof for no one.

    I got on snow covered roof once with some hook ladders on the ridge.
    NEVER EVER AGAIN. Only fronts off the ground if there is snow. Everyone else can wait. Do the ground work and get on the roof as soon as you can.

    I once seen a guy tie a hundred or so helium balloons to a lawn chair. He descended by using a bb gun to shoot out balloons. But I would be having too much fun to get any work down:(
