Fighting the Ice Dams

For those of you in warmer climates this is the sort of stuff we have to deal with in New England.

Yes, that icicle does go from the roof of the bump out to the roof below!

Even worse - if we don't manage the snow on the roof properly it can melt, form a pile of ice at the gutters and then the next day's melt will pile up behind the ice (an ice dam) and leak into the house.

We have a real problem with ice dams right here. It makes it hard to have a nice looking ceiling in the kitchen.

They're predicting 5 - 10 more inches of snow tomorrow.

Anyone got a garden for sale in Florida?
