That means I'd better not walk within 10' of my house. 6" thick ice dams and 7' long icicles weighing 70 lbs hanging over the edge will be dropping like spears. :lol:

Ha,ha,ha, yeah me too Smitty! I just put brand new one piece extruded gutters for my porch rebuild last summer. They are full of snow and ice now with giant icicles. Had I put the crappy old vinyl jobbers, they have split apart by now! :shock:

I've got ice dams. Luckily with the warmer weather these past few days the damn snow we got several weeks ago is finally starting to melt.
