Sorry, Whisper, I was being facetious earlier. Is your house one story or two (or more)? If you do find someone who is willing to go up a ladder in this weather with wind chill factors down below zero, be sure he's insured and expect to pay a premium for the service. Check with your homeowner's insurance company to be sure you're covered -- your insurance may not cover any injury suffered as a result of trying to remove icicles. On the other hand, what are the chances of damage to your house if icicles are not removed? Are cars parked in the area where icicles might fall and do damage? If you do find someone, please post the name here. A lot of other people may have the same concerns as you do.
