    I guess that when they build the buildings there they see no point of adding the little guards to prevent that from happening. Many buildings in the northern areas have them. You see ice fall off of buildings, just not very often and not to that extent. The guards look like this, it is those little tabs.

    I've noticed an explosion in the number of metal roofs and metal tile roofs over the past decade. This was the first big ice storm that hit since the mobile revolution hit too, so we've got a lot more access to share content than ever before. However, the newer style metal roofs just let this stuff slide off once it starts to melt a little bit.

    In many ways, Texas (and other southern states) does not prepare for severe winter weather.

    sadly we do not, you are 100% correct, oklahoma maintains what they call snow routes, only a few highways are snow routes, they drop a little sand at the major intersections, and pretty much shut down schools and business here till the roads are ok. School has been closed since last friday, It looks like many will stat up again tomorrow, the news was showing the intersections sanded, while watching cars sliding and wrecking on hills just feet from the flat intersections they sanded, same with the highways, they will clean a single lane for traffic, yet leave the up hill ramps untouched for people to slip and slide around on. I was saying the other day when this snow was coming, the stores would be picked clean, batteries, generators and food would get scarce, its because they pretty much shut down the state. Add to it the weather shows in combat for ratings painting the worst picture they can, it is more funny than not. Its like the opposite of the canadian story posted the other day, in the south, we just do little to nothing, lol.
