Got a winter gutter question.
I went out of town for a few days when we got a snowstorm and a couple of really frigid nights. Now I have big ice blocks filling all my north-facing gutters, with water dripping off one and turning part of the front entryway into an ice rink. I just cleaned the gutters a few weeks ago, and the gutters and downspouts were all clear. Haven't had many leaves fall since I cleaned them out. It's not a drainage problem, as the downspouts don't seem to be filled with ice. What caused this, and how can I avoid it in the future?
