Winter is refusing to let go of its frigid grip on our area. Despite the beautiful sunshine it is quite cold out and there is still snow on the ground. The warmer day temperatures have caused a bit of thawing with melting snow that freezes into long and rather impressive icicles. One of our downspouts froze up and if you look closely it is from the water coming down then freezing upwards until it met then froze solid. At the same time melting snow from the roof continued to come down the spout and freeze. It looks pretty but is a sign of water damage. As soon as it turns nice this downspout will need replacing as the freezing caused the seam to rupture. This is an easy and low cost DIY repair.
