In Nanaimo a few years back during a particularly bad winter the crew at a marina came to the realization that salt melts snow, that salt water has salt in it and that shoveling tin shed roofs was a PITA. So, armed with gas pumps and fire hoses they went to work. They got a fast lesson in the water holding characteristics of snow. Many, many sheds collapsed with very expensive boats inside.
