Heavy, wet snow Feb. 8 had business and home owners removing accumulated snow off roofs to relieve the weight stress on roof rafters. Several barn and house roof collapses were reported around the state, including a roof that fell on 40 cows at the Roman Way Farm in Chester, Vt.

The farm's main barn burned in a 1990 fire.
