I saw something like this on Facebook today and I thought what a great idea. This one is the Snow Cut-N-Slide but I also saw one called the Avalanche and I think if you were cleaver you could even make one yourself.  The idea is so simple this thingy cuts through the snow on your roof and then the slide part let's it all come down while you stay a comfortable distance away, BRILLIANT! I tried clearing my porch roof once with a standard roof rake and after standing waist deep in snow while pulling down bucket loads on my own head, I gave up thinking there must be a better way. Looks like I was right.

P.S. I did find them on EBay
