Awning 90% wind bloc

We had a friend of ours make up 2 90% wind/rain bloc screens so we can create a comfortable outside space even when the weather is cold, windy or rainy. They are for either or both ends of the our Zip Dee awning. We deployed one (zip ties to the awning rafter and staked to the ground), only took 2 minutes and were able to sit out and watch the sun set over the bay and grill. Temp was only 38 and windy. It works amazingly. We would take one step out in front of the screen and the cold wind was biting. Step back into the shelter of the screen and it was very comfortable. Even Jessie (a kid of grumpy Kimerick Manz) didn't mind too much.

That's a real good idea, Tim - nicely executed. Any chance your friend could be my friend too?
