Giant ice overhang in Parishville
Monday, January 14, 2013 - 9:09 am

With unseasonably warm temperatures in recent days, snow and ice buildup on roofs throughout St. Lawrence County have been sliding off. Peg Jeffery of Parishville captured this shot showing snow and ice build-up very slowly sliding off the garage roof. Big chunks of snow can be seen in the foreground that cleared the main house roof. About a half hour after this photo was taken, the overhang on the garage roof fell to the ground. “This has happened many times over the years, but this accumulation was much larger,” she said.
