    I recall back in the late 90s / early 2000s(?), we had a snow storm in PA that left upwards of 4 feet of snow on roofs all across the state. A few days later it rained. Several hundred roofs collapsed.

    I was fortunate enough to know someone who had a crew, and they cleared it off my mother’s roof the day before the rain. Even then, the roof line has never looked the same.

    looking at the weatherstreet precip animation forecast: http://www.weatherstreet.com/CloudsPrecip.htm#

    it looks like an 18+ hour snow event is headed for Chicago and Northern Illinois from Tuesday night through Wednesday. Possibly into Thurs. as well.
