didn't they see that the metal high pitched roof will allow wet snow to slide off on to the porch below thereby exasperating the weight on the porch to phenomenal levels; -Not too bright for the folks that own that house.

Yeah, the tent pole covering held up until this heavy snow fell. some came off the house roof too and clobbered the poles, but, it did not flatten out like a pancake.
It is still protecting but with broken and bent (pole-bones) poles holding up the tent, with some added sticks, here and there.
Not even a little as bad as the Goons' predicament.
