I was out at daylight clearing the driveway and this was still upright.  Looked out at 9 AM and this is what I saw.  Took picture from inside the house.  It wasn't much of a building anyhow and could likely be saved.

So sorry, Kris!  I hope nothing was underneath of the building! 

 

That's not a fun double take when you walk by your window.

Sorry to hear that. Was it snow load or wind or a team effort by both that brought it down?

It was so warm when the precip hit that we got ice for a while before it changed over to snow.  Don't take much ice to be a lot of weight.  I figure that was the culprit although the wind is bad too. 

Nothing was in that shed as it was an old hog barn [i think] and it wasn't tall enough for much of anything.  I had to duck to go inside.

From the looks of the wall laying out, I'd say some of the supports/posts gave up! Maybe you can have an old fashioned 'barn raising' this spring! Put some taller posts in and make it more usable!

Kris sorry about the bldg.  Glad though that you didn't loose anything in the collapse.  Sounds like Kenny has a good idea.

Sorry for the building loss, Glad you had nothing stored in it. Ice can get very heavy in a hurry, and if are having the same winds we had yesterday, it's very strong gusts. I-35 and the new 130 Toll road (both are N/S roads) were both shut down for hours yesterday due to overturned big rigs all over the place.

Glad to hear nothing was in there Kris. Sucks that it happened though but good thing is nobody got hurt. I can't believe how many areas have gotten snow this year and we haven't had much of anything so far.

No one and no GT's were hurt in the collapsing of this bldg.

 

Glad you and yours are OK.  And yes, a little ice adds up fast.

Sorry to hear it broke down! Like Larry I would wait till spring and see if you can't salvage enough material to build a building that would be more usable. I would love to have a building like that with 10-14 ft walls on my acreage!!
