Hi-Ho Silver

It seemed like the solar rays this summer 
were extra brutal.
I tried to stay out of the sun as much as possible.
A good UV indicator was the canopy tarp,
shredded in less than 2 years.
Uncovering all the hidden junk.
A craigslist guy sells these complete for $160,
and a replacement tarp is $30.
It's a great deal for the coverage,
however this time he only had silver,
not white.
Good thing we had a human ladder to string it up!
How many Perich's does it take to...?
Considerably darker then the white tarp,
but it also feels cooler when the sun is baking down,
as the bricks don't heat up as much either.
Maybe it'll filter out more UV?
Let's see how long this one lasts...
