man every year i have the same problem. the snow melts off of my roof and into my gutters, where it freezes up and completely fills the gutters with ice. then i get these HUGE icicles hanging down...i think im going to have to install some of those electrical strips that you can mount in your gutters and plug in when there is snow on the roof to keep the water moving. any suggestions, im all ears. ive got to do something.
