Reuben's 'Ice Dams, Pantyhose, Salt' post makes him sound like a "mad scientist" when it comes to removing ice dams from roofs... the earlier post (link in the second paragraph) has other methods. Don't try these at home in Columbus, some sound downright dangerous.
I have not heard of anyone having ice dams this winter but the last couple of years I know Central Ohio houses that had them. I hope we make it through this winter without them.
Here's an old poll from the summer of 2009 about wearing / uses for pantyhose. No mention of ice dams, or roofs.
Thanks to home inspector Reuben Saltzman of Minneapolis MN (where they really get snow and ice and are welcome to keep it) for all of his research and for allowing his post, 'Ice Dams, Pantyhose, Salt' to be Re-Blogged.
