Iced

These icicles were firmly attached to both van and ground
I spent many hours yesterday chipping away at ice on our driveway and sidewalk. Shouldn't have. Hours later my arms and hands were extremely painful - only my gall bladder attack pain was worse. I'm going to have to take it easy with things for a couple of days.

one of these icicles is more than three feet long
Here the ice on a little-used door handle starts to slide off.

I was prompted to try and clear the ice because I slipped and fell on Friday night - I knew I would eventually because I was slipping everytime I went out to the van.

EVERYthing has ice on it somewhere!
We don't have any snow anymore ... oh, it LOOKs like snow, but it's more than six inches of solid ice. Anyone here can attest to that.

Wow, check out those icicles! Ekim attempted to open the downspouts, with about 50percent success. This is unreal.

Be careful, and take it easy! I hope you feel better soon.

Sorry you're in pain and that you've had a fall. Sounds dangerous!

What about those propane torches on a pole things? Those have to be able to melt ice without the hacking and chipping and stuff.

I would call in sick till spring.
