Just wondering if anyone had an opinion on what is the most correct way to combine snow drift loads in ASCE 7-05/10. I know that they need not be combined with unbalanced, pattern loading, etc., but what about wind? should you run combinations with wind and snow drift when checking members, or simply do a D + C + S + DRIFT?
