The quickest and easiest method is to pull the gutters down

Mother Nature is wonderful to watch! She keeps us interested.

I find it troubling to read you mocking those in peril yet want help when a hurricane or floods ravage your area.

I just don't understand why they don't ban ice storms. Or ban global warming for that matter!

And deer should really learn to use the crossings that are clearly marked for them! Deer should be banned from crossing in unmarked areas.

Let me rephrase that, we got mosquitoes that could stand flat footed and fornicate a pony.
Damn things laugh at that battery powered tennis racket, I’shoot at them with a BB gun like carpenter bees.

I bought a generac whole house system two years ago, because the power was constantly going out. Sometimes on a clear day , no wind.
other than the weekly maintenance start up , I doubt the thing has 12 hours on it yet.

We got lucky with our trees. I knocked the ice off a few times and only lost a couple of limbs. Got lucky. The big elms behind my fence got pretty tore up, but I’m hoping they survived. The first picture is of the family farm and the second is our backyard yesterday.

I spent about an hour today chipping ice out of my gutters as they were completely frozen. That ice pushed back up under the shingles and was causing a mess of issues. Roofer is coming back out this week to fix the issue.

Oklahoma was devastated in this storm. I have never seen so much damage. It truly is sad.

Laughable response..... The OP was concerned about losing some trees in an ice storm and you equate that to me mocking him being in peril. I have also never asked for, or wanted, help before, during, or after a hurricane. Most of us down here are very well prepared.
