COVID-19 Diary: Day 83
Dear Old Blog,
Apologies for a practical observation in a time of national crisis.
But, I've had this on the brain lately:
Due to hurricanes, tornados and civil unrest, why don't all windows have a protective element that can be activated when needed?
You would press a button and a shield would descend over your windows?
Or, perhaps all windows could be protected by actual, functioning shutters with tremendous strength. The kind that could be activated by remote?
So, if I am traveling, and I learn a hurricane is coming close to Orlando, I could press a button on an app, and instantly protect all of my house windows?
Overall: Instead of having to board up windows with temporary plywood, why not have a built-in, permanent solution? Even make them interesting and beautiful from a design perspective?
P.S. I first posted a version of this on Facebook. Head over there to see some helpful comments.
