    That's what I do when I'm board between the storms, just helps me sleep better. A blocked storm sewer is just as bad as a downspout draining across a sidewalk...from a liability standpoint. Even worse when it turns into a swimming pool. Sometimes I even hit them w/ extra salt for insurance, as they tend to ice over anyway. Way too many opportunists out there. Glad you got it drained...hope it didn't bite you.
