I imagine I'll need to hook it back up once the snow melts, but I'm astounded that the weather could have this much of an effect on our signal.
Sounds like your preamp went bad. I would test it behind the tv before putting it back up on the antenna. I guess it could also be the power supply that feeds the preamp also, anyway I would test everything out before going to the work to put it back on the antenna.

PBSKids launched January 16th but some affiliates did not get on board at launch due to technical issues.
