Our homeowner's policy excludes greenhouse structures. Nothing was growing 
in it at the time.  It's been quite a number of years since we have had this 
much snow come down in one night (10inches).  So I totally forgot about 
getting out there, turning on the heat, brushing the snow off, etc.  Instead 
I was enjoying the snow...snowshoeing at midnight.   I woke up to the 
devastation the next morning.  One bright side is that the bottom posts (we 
had it 4 feet up on L bars like Elliot coleman's movable structure) were not 
bent  So we just have to replace the hoops, plastic and repair and make 
changes to the ends which we can do before our March 1st traditional start 
of growing the Ghouse.  I'm thinking that I will go with the gothic style so 
that this won't happen again. Even though this will require extra costs in 
changing the end walls.
