  • Wind power. Gotta love it.

    this is a pic of a building here in town with the entrance located on the leeward side.

    before the sign was put up a snowdrift would form and would be higher than the door pictured during a blizzard.

    this is not a good thing. especially with the building full of students. back in the day this was a student residence.

    some engineer guy came up with the idea of using the wind to keep the stairs free of snow.

    the sign re-directs the wind flow over the roof downward and acts like a venturi.

    now the snow settles in the parking lot were it can be easily removed by heavy equipment.
