comment What (animal?) made a 0.75" diameter hole through my asphalt shingles?
What about a meteorite? Could it have possibly been caused by a firework (magnesium burns pretty hot, and is commonly used in fireworks)?

comment What could go wrong with washing machine water hammer devices?
@Zhentar I'd have to see some calculations to the contrary before I was convinced, since my experience has shown them to be ineffective.

comment 2 hot wires into light switch and no neutral
You should definitely contact an Electrician. By your account you have a potential fire hazard, which in my book warrants professional assistance (not the help of some random Internet folk).

comment Outlet trips GFCI outlet
Why did you replace the receptacle? Was the grounding conductor attached to the old receptacle? Some surge protectors work by directing the surge to the grounding conductor. With this type of surge protector, it's possible a surge could cause a GFCI protecting the circuit to trip.

comment How can I convert a 240V dryer outlet to two branch circuits?
Diagrams might be helpful for this answer, as your description could be quite confusing for an amateur. GFCIs on multi-wire branch circuits can be difficult to wire properly, so a diagram would help with that as well.

comment What's wrong with my replacement GFCI outlet?
Read the documentation that came with the device. Some GFCI's have a light that's on when they have power, other only have a light when they trip.
