Killer Icicles, or please don't visit us.

I am currently sitting in my living room waiting for the arrival of one of our first guests!  It has snowed a great deal and the house is sitting atop a mountain of snow, and a mountain of snow is sitting atop the house....

I have a broom at the ready, in order to pull our guest up the stairs which are totally covered in ice. We have salted, but there's no stopping it--we need to redo the entire gutter system, which will happen in the spring, but until then we are threatened daily with...

Killer icicles!!

Three tiers of them in some cases!
It's really quite terrifying, and we hope that you are not planning to chance your life and visit us.... We promise that next winter, our doorways will be clear and open and inviting, and the only unusual thing that you will see when you visit in the winter is...

Pope/Gnome St. Francis!  Hee... look at his funny snow hat.
