Icicle Death

Day 2 of the northeast's three-day blizzard has me thinking about icicle death. Not death by icicle, but rather, how often people die from icicles falling on them, aka Cliffhanger. Slate had an article about this in 2003, and apparently 6 people died from icicle attacks this past year. Otherwise there's not a lot of data out there. I'm hoping the US Census people will add this as a question. Can't they go up to 11?
