The steep slope of the roof keeps snow from piling up and adding weight to the top of the cabin, but since the weather is cold and the snow is not melting, it piles up below. Since both cabin doors are on the side where drifts pile up, we try to keep the doors cleared of snow so that when the spring melt occurs, water doesn't seep inside and ruin the floors. Yesterday Rylan worked diligently to shovel all the snow from both entry ways. What a lot of work! But he did good --- and then came home and took a long nap!
