Doesn't mean it can't be installed now, you old dog. Takes care of the problem of wind.

Especially out there in West TX. Ever been to Marfa? That's where they filmed it.

Look it up. Marfa is most famous for its unexplained lights. Great place to ride gliders. They have some intense thermals. Sort of became a high dollar real estate place because of artists.
