Every spring, I see 2-3 dozen of those things, crushed by the snow, laying in yards, all
mangled and not good for much anymore.
Some look like huge dismembered praying mantis. Legs spread up in the air.
Others look like those huge Galapagos Island Tortoise. Just a big
grey lump, with no way into it.

Definitely have to get the snow off of them, the HD ones are of heavier gauge tubing, I put 100 lb propane tank and a 150,000 BTU torpedo heater in it , fire it up less than 15 minutes heated it up enough that the snow against the "skin" started to melt and it let all the rest slide off, worked every time, no BS

The collapsed ones are just waiting to be rescued. Often the tarps haven't ripped and the pipes are only bent. A few hours of straightening and mig welding and you have a useable shelter. Good Luck, Rick
