12-16-07 We are in the midst of an ice storm that followed a heavy snow storm on Thursday, paralyzing Boston and making national news. We only had about 6" of heavy, wet snow on Cape Cod, but this is the finished azymaya's
first snow of the season. I've attached a photo from Friday morning, when the snow finally stopped. You'll note that the projecting ridge kept all of the snow away from the now-screened roof openings while the 2' overhangs around the sides kept snow away from the walls. Rain is affected the same way; the inside doesn't get wet except during the near-horizontal, wind-driven rain from the hurricane.
