David Fay replied to John Nicholas's discussion Icicles in the group Hall of Shame
"What I see is pictures of a mass of snow and ice flowing down an incline that has little friction (like a metal or membrane roof). Like a glacier. Does this have anything to do with heat loss? Also, the pictures of bare spots on the roof around…"
