    Vance County, NC Snow

    We got a little over 8" yesterday, still sleeting this morning, but the wind during the night cleaned a lot of snow off the trees, so no power outages. On a negative note, my hay shelter collapsed from the weight, pinning in my tractor, PTO generator and all my implements, but the hay is dry. Got the tractor out, but ran over the bush hog in the snow and punched a hole in the sidewall of a rear tire on the 5075e ($$$) . Looks like we'll be adding on to the main barn next year to store hay and may be able to salvage one end of the shelter.Click image for larger version.

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    Sorry to hear of the damage and weather related troubles. The hay shelter looks like it's a big shelter, what size is / was it? What type of roof structure did it have? From the size of the service door in the building next to the hay shelter, it looks like the hay shelter had to be what 80 feet or more in length?

    Feel free to send the snow north, we are ready and waiting for it................

    It was a 30'x80' with a 15' center height and 12'x12' door flaps on both ends. It had a hoop framework out of galvanized tubing. I bought it new in the box last year for $3500 from a guy on craigslist (the dealers wanted $7000 and up for that size) and from the specs on the box, it should have stood up to the weight, but obviously, something went wrong. I may be able to salvage enough to shorten it to a 30'x30' but until the snow melts off, it's too heavy to deal with. Here's a photo of the inside with my tractors.

    Nice! I wanted a cab, but I didn't "need" a cab. The cost was just too high. I've got the same blade. Love it!

    That right there is a classic understatement!
    All joking aside ,I am sorry for your misfortune. The structure was not designed to meet the snow load and failed. Next time ask for the product design loads and get your local snow load information from the building cops. I like to exceed the local loading requirements by at least 10 p.s.f. to avoid the occasional rogue snow event.

    Go with Clear Span Products I have had my Green Tent building for 15 years now and winter is not a problem. My Pipe angle is steeper and the material is Green so it makes the inside warmer. The snow does not stick well to mine and slides off all the time. My cost was about $5,800.00 delivered but they have gone up in price now. Mine has been hit with 50-60 MPH winds several times my sdes have flaps on the lower 2 ft that lif up to let wind pressure out. I leave my roll up door open all the time darn zippers are a pain to use. Might add a roll up door toit. My pipes are also 2 1/2" and on 4 ft centers if that helps?Click image for larger version.

    I noticed the diagonal support wires between your hoops, JD. I'm sure that really helps keep things from shifting in the wind. I don't think I've ever noticed those before on one of these canvas buildings.
