Saving ourselves in winter

Sporadically it just takes a little human ingenuity to figure out a solution to an insurmountable problem.

I guess both of us have seen that time & time again in human history thanks to all of the amazing inventions & discoveries that our ancestors have made.

All of us owe them a lot when it comes to our new comforts & ways of life… Recently, I am proud to report that our siblings & I came up with a similarly wise & innovative solution to something that was going to massively inconvenience all the people. You see, both of us have an ancient family cottage many hours away in a cold environment. The outdoor air temperature correctly drops below -20 degrees there & it is not abnormal for many feet of snow to fall at a time. Sporadically you cannot even get out of the condo because it is so frigidly cold that you cannot shovel your own driveway. The roads will ice up while I was in immensely cold days & it becomes impossible to go somewhere. At the same time, you have to worry about the amount of snow that accumulates on your cold cold roof. Even with your indoor air temperature control system cranked up at the highest level, you cannot supply enough heat to your roof to melt the snow. However, the snow will get so heavy that it can cave in your roof. This is why both of us needed some kind of heating solution to melt all of the snow rather than making trips to shovel it ourselves. Eventually, both of us settled on radiant heated flooring. All of us were able to install electric radiant radiant floors under the roofing tiles & connected it to a smart control unit. Now, both of us can adjust the rooftop heating system to melt the snow, all from the comfort of our sizzling homes.
