While you are probably correct in most cases, in our case the gutters are important to direct rainwater away from the leach field between our house and garage, so in some cases it also relates to managing where the water goes other than just a convenience over doorways.

+1, especially if you have a basement, you want to get the water away from the foundation before it sinks into the ground

That's true, and the falling water will erode the soil near the house creating an easier path to the foundation, in addition to splashing dirt against the side of the house that may or not be easily cleaned if it's allowed to bake on in the sun.

Many thanks to all who posted - including the links to previous threads that I was too lazy to find. Lots to research and figure out what to do between now and the fall leaf drop.
