Eagle America is near Lake Erie which puts us in the snow belt of Ohio. Normally we get a dusting before Christmas but on December 14th we had over 3 feet of snow on the ground and drifts as high as 6 feet on the roof.
Seeing our suspended ceiling tiles starting to shift, it was time to go get my Amish friend Merv Yoder and his sons to clear off the roof. Merv lives in the Amish community of Parkman, Ohio. While driving to pick him up, I wasn’t sure my van would stay on the icy, snow covered, back roads. The horse and buggies I passed along the way had no problems.
I picked Merv and his boys up and within a few hours of returning to Eagle America in Chardon, Ohio, Merv and his boys had all of the snow and ice off the roof. We may not be able to see out the windows until the Easter Bunny arrives, but at least we don’t have to worry about the roof falling in!
Thanks Merv! Being that you have no electricity or access to our blog posts, I guess I’ll have to print this out and send it to you via snail mail. If they deliver it you via horse, I know you will get it.
