    nope they used to build everything well and geared for both high winds and snowload. But with the boom all the new construction is crap. Have a roofer friend and they frequently have to nail/screw down the roof decking before they can even start to shingle. IT's the wind that will cause us to get to -70 below up here, Windchill is a big thinig.

    say camping you can also wet down the burlap and that should help cool the chickens down as the breeze blows through it.

    don't feel bad twist. Some of us try to figure out why an appliance isn't working only to find out it's not plugged up.

    Well, there's much about living in CA that can drive a person nutzo, happily -70 windchill is not one of them. [​IMG] No, thank you.

    yep had one of those staying here. He was with the guy we had to move (hunting party 3 rooms) says the light between the beds quite working all of the sudden. For starters it is a lamp and they had moved the beds around and knocked the plug out of the wall. I think he left his keeper at home. God know he needs one!! He has been a bigger PITA then the other 14 rooms of hunters combined.

    You all realize that you can always put on more clothes when your cold but can only take of so many before you get arrested. [​IMG]

    In case you are all wondering about the massive number of posts it is because I just can't get over HOM MUCH of an improvement the golden feather is!!! [​IMG] I will try to control myself before the angel who did this for me regrets it and asks for a refund. [​IMG][​IMG]

    This is exactly the reason I need to get out of north Carolina. It feels like hell in the summer. Good thing I'm in the sticks and I can sit out there watching my chickens in my drawers. Hate the heat and love snow. I'm definitely in the wrong place.
