Is there ice on your roof?
I learned from my newspaper yesterday that I had better get out there and knock them down.
"...Ice dams that form on the roof edge behind them can lead to more costly repairs.With the weather taking a turn later this week into sub-zero zones, those dams will slowly grow, pushing ice back up the roof and under the shingles. When there is a thaw, the dams keep the water from flowing off the roof, causing leaks into interior walls that could go unnoticed until the damage is extensive." Read more at the Times Union.
So, I tried to knock down the icecycles.
The snow against the house was up to my hips, so using the shovel to knock down the icecycles wasn't always successful.
Unfortunately, my buddy here is not Lassie. It took me awhile to get up, but the shovel helped as a crutch. My other dog was taking the photos.
Here are another couple photos, which I took on Petersburgh (my town) Pass. The last one is my favorite.
Wishing you a more successful day!
