When it comes to the roof, however, it's a different matter: that really is up to the householder. It works like this. If you can clear more than 50 kilogrammes of snow from one square metre of roof, it's too much: you need to call in the experts, or have a go yourself at sweeping the roof. This can be a very tricky business, involving ropes and harnesses normally employed for tackling mountain faces.
It's common at this time of year to see signs dotting the pavements saying 'Pozor! Padá led ze střech!' - 'Look Out - Ice Falling from Roof!' Personally, I'd be more worried about people falling from roofs. To see what the gods have in store for Vršovice in the coming days, click on the weather tab at the top of the page.
