Not funny! After 19 1/2″ of snow – glad it was a “dry” snow and not wet – some equipment fails. In this case, our canopy over the hot tub collapsed. Now the questions: (1) Did the hot tub get damaged, (2) Is the pump and water level and temperature OK? and (3) Did the top sustain any damage? Good news! The tub is fine. Pump, water level and temperature fine. The top did not get damaged. The only thing that was destroyed is the canopy. 7 years old. So, it is time to try to clean up as much as possible before the next storm comes through. Left-Click these photos to see them enlarged.
19 1/2″ of snow! The most in Boise since 1984.
This is what I walked out back to. Pump OK? Heaters? Top? Water level? Yup! All OK.
Starting to remove debris and try to save the end pieces. Canvas is destroyed as are the supporting members.
Removing snow, that is now very wet and salvaging the end pieces of the canope.
Side rails and supports, 3/4’s removed. Tarps saved and the sun screens, too. Snow cleared on most of the tub and surrounding. Blue tarp added to top and to the smoker (background) Salvageable lights collected and power cord collected.
Despite all of this, Boise can be berautiful in the Winter. The snow just has to stay in the mountains, which it usually does.
