A contractor was removing snow from the roof of the Valor Financial Partners building at 622 Atlantic Ave. in Morris March 7. Two barricades blocked a portion of the sidewalk to allow snow to be blown from the roof onto the sidewalk.

Tamela Sperr of Valor said the snowload was causing stress on the roof's structure. "There's just too much snow," Sperr said. The building's roof was not leaking but she wanted to remove the snow to avoid any such damage, Sperr said.

Sperr said it's likely other buildings and homes in the area will have a similar problem and will need to remove snow, especially after the snow in the forecast for this weekend.
