I mostly go inside and put my hip or back up against the side plastic and
push it out 3 to 4 inches. Sometimes I've had to sit on the ground and lean
back to do it, sometimes push sideways. That also gives an air space to get
my hands or shovel in to go ahead and remove the snow. Usually it is packed
enough that I can just grab big chunks and throw/lay them aside.

Subject: [Market-farming] Greenhouses and snow
How much snow does it take to affect greenhouses at their sides/base?
Here in Virginia we've already had at least 8" on snow, with 12" more on the
We're knocking the snow off of our not-designed-for-heavy-snow greenhouses,
but of course the snow's just sliding down the sides and piling up at the
base... at some point do we need to start shoveling snow away from the sides
so that there isn't undue pressure on the sides?
