I do like Pittosporum and this P. tobira ‘Variegata’ was already leaning and open before the snow though it is more emphasized now. Once such a plant starts to lean and splay out gravity will magnify any load put on it, causing increasing damage. This one could be pruned back somewhat to encourage regrowth to move its center of mass more over its roots.
