David Fay commented on Tom Delconte's blog post Why people don't change their electrical supplier!

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…"

David Fay commented on Jon LaMonte's blog post Building Science Proven by the Bug Man
"I agree with most of your diagnosis but you went a bit off track here: "Remembering that the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics states simply that hot goes to cold, the warmer air in the attic was trying to force its way into the cooler home. …"
