On average, the Minneapolis area gets approximately 32 inches of rain each year and more than 52 inches of snow. This translates into more than 110 days each year with precipitation. Of course, we try to avoid the rain and snow, staying inside during heavy precipitation, using umbrellas, rain jackets and snow gear to protect us from the elements.

When the weather is warm and there are still months of long days and the promise of sweaty, outdoor activities in front of us, the last thing most people want to be thinking about is ice dams. Ice dams are a reality during the colder months, so shouldn’t we be able to enjoy the warmer weather months without having to think about the realities of a cold, dark return of winter?
