Usually it takes about 2 or 3 hours. It doesn't all melt off, just the bottom layer starts to melt and WHOOOOSH, it all slides off lol.


Here is my wood stove:

That 'slide off' happens with my canvas roof as well. I actually like a light load of snow up there because it helps hold in the heat. 18" is too much though. What happens is I get the snow off and then the soaked roof cover freezes solid in the cold once the stove is out. That's a very slick surface up there when the outside temp plummets.

Thanks for the link (before I saw only the small pics in your profile with the blue stove....) and the information,
