Pretty icicle! But yeah, drain that. BTW, I've seen some mountain cabins using a chain hanging from the gutter rather than pipe. Instead of the pipe freezing and breaking apart from the ice, the chain guides the water down to the ground, and any ice just forms around the chain, not harming anything.
I have a rain barrel. In the garage. I'm a bit worried about cutting the downspout.
Very clever, Keera! I would think that the chain also gives the ice a bit of extra strength, so it is not as likely to break off in a strong wind.Tut, you can always get a replacement downspout, right? ;)
