More Snow, More Ice

So, there was another snowstorm overnight. Nothing too bad, nothing to worry about. Yet, with regards to me, it is a problem: ice under snow.

What happened is that it rained overnight turning to snow. This then meant that the snow would be wetter, heavier, this much I expected.

I had feared that the rain first and/or the mixture of rain turning to snow would turn into ice overnight, and it did.

This is what I was left with after I brushed the snow off of the solar panels.
  

I wonder if anyone makes fitted covers for solar panels? That way I could put a cover over them the night before and take them off in the morning. 

Thus no ice on them.

I am expecting that the heat from the sun will melt the ice long before noon. I will pop out at morning coffee break and at noon, if need be, to brush the solar panels off.

Ah well, more fun with solar panels in winter.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
