Beauty and drawbacks

I photographed this very long icicle out my bathroom window early one morning last week.
I have never seen such a large icicle on my house in all the time I've lived here.
There were other large ones that formed as well, but this one, a real beauty, presented
problems that developed over the days of our very intense 2-punch blizzards here in the northeast.
An ice dam formed, jutting out over top of the icicles.
Oh oh.
Several years ago before the new roof went on, there was water pouring down the INSIDE of the bathroom wall. Was this to happen again?
BUT it only last a short while and it did not run down the walls, just dripped from the window onto the window sill.
I am told the the insulation needs checking.
Next job.
This is the life part of life and art interwoven.
I know, I didn't have to tell you that...
