Near record snow leaves many homeowners searching for roof rakes

WAUSAU (WAOW) - Some homeowners feel the pressure of the near-record snow already piled up on roofs and another storm predicted.

Store managers across our area tell Newsline 9 they are having a tough time keeping up with demand for roof rakes.

"We are out. Our suppliers are out and I don't think we will get any more in," said Marathon Hardware owner Tim Zuleger.

At Charlie's Hardware in Mosinee, a shipment of 30 pre-ordered roof rakes arrived Wednesday, and more are on the way.

"We are expecting 100 of them to arrive on Thursday and about half of those are sold," said Charlie's Hardware president Jeff Kyhos.

We talked with several stores and all reported dozens of calls from people searching for roof rakes.
