On Monday Riondel Marina boathouses looked like they were hit hard by the heavy snowfall. Carol Brassuer and her family’s boathouse was fine as they shovelled the roof on Monday morning. She and her daughter Gabby posted pictures on social media so the community could see how severe the damage was and boat owners could check on their vessels

Cliff McGregor of the Riondel Marina said that “it’s no worse than normal and there was no damage to any of the boats. Some [boathouses] go down on the ass end as they have two feet overhanging past the floatation. Everyone has their responsibility to remove the snow and there are some people who don’t have boats in them.”

“We don’t like the snow because it’s a lot of work but it happens every year.”

Similar damage was reported in Procter.
