Easily remove snow from your roof.
After receiving over 50 inches of snow this winter and you are like me you went to the local hardware store to find a snow rake for the roof. Only to be told they are sold out.
Well necessity being the mother of invention forced me to make my own.
So hear is my first attempt at an instructable.
Parts list and cost file attached below.

Step 11: Snow Ripper II - The Upgrade - For $20.00 More
I had a few comments about the pole so here I am trying to address them.
Some thought the pole might be to flexible.
As you know our hardware stores are running out of shovels, snow rakes, speedy melt, and anything used for snow removal.
With this economy I am still trying to keep a functional tool as well as cost effective.
So off to find a sturdier / lightweight pole.
I came up with a painter extension pole $17.97. Problem is I could not find a nut large enough to fit the thread at the end of the pole. So I bought a small roller handle for $1.97.
