Snow no longer melts off the roof

Snow on a trailer roof

We enjoyed a solstice snow, which gave me some solid (if non-numerical) data about the value of the newly insulated roof.  Mark and I both seem to recall that during previous snows, the frozen water melted right off in short order, but this time around, it seems to be sticking and staying.  R30 on top of the R13 already in the roof of the old trailer seems to be doing the trick of keeping heat inside the house where it belongs.
