Snow/ice on docks blew inside & did not melt

Rare snow on river freezes cafe's pipes!

Business owners forced to close due to frozen pipes again, last time was in early December. The alarm kept going off due to high wind gusts out of the gorge. So cold inside that the snow that blew in around the door cracks did not melt. Waiting for it to thaw out and hoping there is no damage. It's a seasonal business that struggles during the winter, losing 4 days of sales does not help. The financial impact will also affect the staff who has been unable to work for almost a week. This is usually the last place to get snow! This is the worst they have seen in over a decade.
