Snow hanging down from roofs

The snow storm that started yesterday morning is continuing, although the best (or the worst, depending on your outlook) of it is over. The amount of snow that has accumulated will keep us busy tomorrow, despite the fact that my restless neighbors have already spent most of the day shoveling and blowing snow, while it was still snowing heavily. They even shoveled my driveway as I took pictures of them. Such nice neighbors.

Meanwhile, the snow along the edges of roofs have been hanging down in peculiar formations.


Here is another example.


And one more.


These hanging snow skirts have been quite stable during the last several hours. I suspect the snow must be rather sticky for it to be able to hang on like that.
