Let it Snow!!! Antenna Survives Snow Storm of 2010

We had record snow this year in the Philadelphia area.  I remember seeing a number of commercials from cable companies talking about how poorly satellites performed in bad weather.  The assumption is that antennas will have a similar struggle in bad weather.

It turns out... the weight of the snow on a tree branch knocked the Comcast cable that carries internet and phone to my home.  It took a week for the cable to be reattached.  My antenna on the other hand didn't fail me... not for one minute.  We had free High Definition TV to entertain us while the Internet and Phone we pay for didn't work.  I took a video to show how well it performed.
