So technically my run is already covered but since a picture is worth a thousand words, I thought a thread with photos that contrast extreme conditions outside the run and the protection a covered run provides might save people from building a run and then later wishing they had covered it. So, on that note, here's what it looks like outside my run today. That 3 inches of rain in the kiddie pool is just since this morning. And here it is in the run. Nice and dry. I'm sure many of you have your own pics (probably far more convincing than mine) so feel free to add them.
