Is it safe to eat icicles that are hanging from my roof?

According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, clean ice and snow are edible, but ice and snow in urban areas may contain pollutants. The center advises to eat snow only in wilderness areas. For more information, go to nsidc.org/snow/faq.html.
