    With this storm coming back it might be wise to talk to professionals about what the storm can do to damage these businesses and homes around the area. I ran into a guy that worked for http://www.icedamremovalguys.com and they are in the area, because there are too many homes experiencing structural damage, leaks, and flooding. I assume some of these businesses are experiencing the same? Would be interesting to hear from business owners about this and learn what we can do to avoid the dams.

      I talked to that business too, and they told me the single biggest issue with ice and snow, is that the city of Bend has the lowest tax bracket in the state, and therefore we can’t afford to plow or pave the roads very much, thats why everything is so dangerous!
