Duct tape is just too much of a mess to get off in this heat and humidity.

The tape doesn't actually protect the glass all that much. Flying debris would still crack or break it. But what it does do, especially if you are staying in the house like Terri and Paul did, is keep the broken glass from flying around if it were to break.
There was a spooky news intervies with a guy who had put on protective work goggles because of the flying debris, and he was holding them to show the camera - they had a jagged shard of glass stuck through one lens protruding on the inside about 6 inches.. yikes!

And if you really want to get High tech, try ACE Security Laminates. (Disclaimer, I do not work for them, but they put their security laminate on all of the fumehoods at the university).

Check the website out if only for the abuse they put the windows under once they film it up.

The other trouble with tape is that it doesn't do much good if a loose object such as rock or tree branch comes barreling towards it at 100 miles/hour. The tape might prevent a little splintering, but the window is just as smashed and in need of replacement. Plywood or metal shutters are the way to go.

Very good news!
Shelly has already been kind enough to point out that some of it has been applied in a crooked manner.

i couldn't help myself. it's an unfortunate byproduct of OCD. but, i hope i've redeemed myself by taking care of that pesky hubby's-asstacular-boss problem.

Oh yes.That was a wonderful site for nifty ideas!
I hope someday to get the opportunity to apply a few of them on the guy.

For that you need Twinkies and lunch meat. Eternity through preservatives.

Didn't we cover this once? I think I said I ... pain,because the lake is only around 20-30 feet or so.

Yes, we discussed this before, but that doesn't mean I can't also discuss it when someone starts a "favorite Lake Pontchartrain song" conversation. Hon, if people can only discuss something once on usenet, this whole froup here is SOL, know what I'm sayin'?

Um,there was nothing there but intended humor,and maybe another opportunity to discuss the shallowness of the Lake and the humor I find in the song.
Sorry if it came across otherwise.
Feel free to discuss whatever you like.I'll not enter into the song/lake discussions again.

BTW,I'm putting together a Duct Tape Removal party. You're both invited.

You know, it took me a minute to figure out there was duct tape anywhere. I think that it has been applied artistically enough that you can leave them alone, no matter what Shelly says. Good to have you back.

Thanks! I'm pleased to not be dead my own self!

Okay. I thought you were harassing me. Which is okay, actually, since I don't mind being harassed by you. But that meant that I had to harass you back. I would have put some smileys in but Kibo would excommunicate me if he found out.
Also, there is no humor in Radney Foster. His pain may be shallow, but it is still very serious. He's going to cry a whole Mississippi River, for heaven's sake, the poor man!

Nope,you aren't obnoxious enough to qualify for the Hillock of Harassment.
But that meant that I had to harass you back.
That's acceptable and is what qualifies you for my Ladder of Hate.

Or worse,made you drink habanero hot sauce.

Oh,No.You.Don't.Even.Trollerize.Me. I'm onto you,baybee.

(Normally I wouldn't have assumed the worst.I realized later that that I get overly sensitive when I'm overly tired.) And this week certainly has qualified for that. When I got home from work yesterday I fed the dogs and fell asleep immediately,sleeping almost 10 hours straight.
I was that exhausted.
