Getting snow? If so is it screwing with your Signal right now? I have never had this happen but it seems that maybe the snow is sticking to the dish. I have no signal.
The only downfall to having a Dish..Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!

I had to brush some ice off the dish this morning fortunately I can reach the dish with a ladder

Same here, little bit of snow, but the issue isn't how much as the fact that it's a HEAVY WET snow.

Detfan, you got kids?

Get thier Super Soaker out, fill it with Hot water and blast away !

sadly the heavy wet snow or even ice kills a signal. Last year here in Minneapolis we had "concrete snow" and the signal was out for 5 hours until I got the dish cleaned (well the LNB more than the dish)

Of course, it's warmed up and the snow has melted ....

Fwiw, I'm about 30 minutes from you at most.

In the wrong direction:p

Nice pic, looks like if I ever meet Jimbo in person ;)

I too had to brush the dish off the morning, had a solid zero on every satellite. I have mine mounted on the side of the house about 8' off the ground, easily reachable with a snowbrush.

I've always had my dish farm on the side of the house or mounted to the side of the deck so I could work on them. During the winter, I would occasionally clean them off with a bucket of warm water when they iced-over. I would only mount a dish on the roof as a last resort...and would be more apt to take down a tree or two.

I too had zeros on the HD sats, but still had acceptable signal on the 101, so as a worst case scenario I could have watched SD.
