shame on you, fool me twice…
What the heck is this about? Our roof again. When I first started this blog, we had ice fill our gutters and block the melting water underneath the thick layer of roof ice, causing it to come running down our windows and into our house. I saw the start of this happening again this year, but the ice was so thick, I guess I thought there wasn’t much we could do about it and I was blindly hoping some warm weather might take care of it. Not.
Instead I found the water coming in again and called J. at work right away. At least this time, we knew what was happening. A few hours on ladders with a pickax, hot water poured from a trashcan, and eventually hot water from the hose connected to our washing machine connection and we are back to normal and for now. Our gutter is working-downspout and all.
Thankfully, my husband is quite the gentleman and resisted any urge he might have had to say “I told you so”. He wanted to buy heated wires to lay in the gutters and I balked at the price and said something incredibly naive like “We can just throw some Ice Melt up there if it starts to happen again”.
You can’t see much in the pictures, I just took them to remind me to post. And to show the snow for those who live somewhere nice and warm.
