the hockey puck shaped salt things didn't
appear to do much.
The heater tape in the back did some thing,
there was snow missing where the tape went
zigzag, and might have been some channels
through the ice dam.
On the front, not much visible change. There
is one channel through the ice where I chipped
and propane torched. Rest of it looks much
I used the pole rig to put up some rock salt.
Rock salt on the slippery ice dam slides off
to the ground. Salt on the snow above the ice
dam sticks in place. Might melt through the
ice dam, or might melt and run under the ice
dam and come through the ceiling.
Not sure what to do, now. Might take a torch
or propane heater, and try to melt some of the
ice off. Might try and find a roof rake, so I
can remove the fresh snow before it remelts.
Might try and get Mom to let me put up some
heat tape on the front, also. Meantime, not
much to do but worry and wait.
