  1. Now I can understand why they put roofs over walking bridges. The snow build up can make traversing them dangerous in the winter and they were built prior to the days of snow plows.

    But what is the advantage of a bridge over a canal? According to Pascal’s law, the pressure from snow would not be any lower under the birdge even if snow could accumulate.

    So why does this bridge exist?
