With the temperatures dropping across North Dakota, there's no doubt that some of you will have to deal with ice collecting on your roof.

There are a number of ways to remove it safely. The above video is not one of those ways.

Another thing to avoid while removing ice from your roof is something I did when I was a kid. Here's the story: My neighbors had a very low-hanging roof. When we had snow, freezing temperatures, etc., large icicles would form from the roof and grow all the way to the ground.

One cold afternoon, my younger sister and I decided to attempt to knock one of these massive icicles down, which was actually much easier than I had expected. One push and the icicle came crashing down...right on my little sister's head.

Luckily, there was only a little bit of blood and, perhaps, a mild concussion. We were kids. Things happen and she's fine now, so...whatever.
