An ice dam is a thick ridge of solid ice that builds up along a home’s eaves when heat escapes from a home’s attic, melts the snow on the roof and refreezes. When it melts, an ice dam can harm gutters and shingles – and cause water damage inside the house.
The locally owned, not-for-profit utility is accepting entries for its Worst Ice Dam Contest from Dec. 21, 2014, to March 20, 2015. To enter, utility customers may submit no more than three photos, along with name, address and phone number, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Lake Mills Light & Water, 307 N. CP Ave., Lake Mills, WI 53551. The winner will be contacted via phone or email.
