    I feel for you . Last week i was up every two hours all night keeping my green house clear, it was snowing about an inch an hour . i first had to shovel my to it then when i finished i would have to dredge back to the house. twenty five feet doesnt seem like a long way till you have to move the snow several times a night. we had forteen inches by day break, so it was good that i cleared it as it came down , it would have crushed the thing to the ground for sure.this was the morning after. see all clean.
    .
    the front yard see the bird bath it could only hold about 13 inches but its still ther now but down to maybe 10inches.

    Oh no! Frozen neps!

    In my area, there is no snow; in fact, there wasn't even rain today.

    If you arent actually using the greenhouse in the winter..if you are in a northern climate and dont heat it..
    what about rigging a big tarp over the top?
    so the snow slides off down to the ground..

    put up two poles, one in the front and one in the rear of the greenhouse, slightly taller than the greenhouse..
    run a rope between the poles..
    the tarp goes over the rope, and forms a "tent" over the greenhouse..
    the tarp doesnt not actually touch the greenhouse..
    snow simply slides off the steep "tent" edges down to the ground..

    yes, it would block light..and you would keep the tarp set up all winter,
    but if you have no growing plants inside during the winter, blocking of light wouldnt be an issue..
