Leaf blower wont work. Way too heavy snow and ice. I don't even think a leaf blower would work on ultra powdery dry snow for removal.

On the 1 new dock at our marina that was still floating but leaning because of the 4-5' snow on the 1 side of the roof, the marina placed salomanders up on top to help melt the snow while the guys were shoveling. The water was just pouring off in the short time we were there.
They did have to work evenly the full width so as not to cause the roof to buckle from clearing 1 section at a time if they were to do so.

Any chance you can see E dock/cruiser dock at Glencove Yacht Club? They're telling me only damage on the channel end of that dock, so I might be ok. So I'm just hoping it doesn't go down before it melts.

Which Glencove is that??? 1mm, 3mm or 21mm???????

3mm is a total loss on all docks
1mm docks all saved
21mm many docks in bad shape

This info is from a Glencove salesman posted on MWBP.

I would assume your lift has stops at the full up. If your lift only has pivets points, the lift is not helping the dock at all. If you have, you might try chaining the lift to the dock (from a second boat if dock shifting is an issue) and then blowing the lift tanks.

Truely a sad situation, never the less. Good luck to all you LOTO guys.

It is helping if the walkway is under water, like a lot of these docks are. The pivot point is generally near water level, on most docks that is a couple feet below the walkway.
