I'm back. Gutters are CLEAN! I use extensions on my leaf blower for doing the job. It takes about 2 1/2 of these to reach my gutters. Kind of unwieldly, but I don't want to climb ladders any more especially with a 20lb. blower. My gutters are high and I think I'd feel too out of balance on a ladder. The storm rolled through yesterday afternoon. Lost a couple of trees, power for about 5 hours, and a whole bunch of shingles from the roof. It should be C/R's turn next.
