National Tour of Solar Homes came to Baton Rouge on Saturday, October 13,
2001... or did it? We now know one thing. When it pours down
raining with severe thunderstorm warnings from dawn until night with 60
mph gusts, people do not go on solar tours. The event was listed
in the Baton Rouge newspaper "FUN" section, posters were put up at many
local outlets, and the word was spread on the web. Should we have
a raincheck day? Let me know if there is some interest I will make
the arrangements. The tour highlight was the new pole mount in the
backyard for the panels. The panels held tight in the wind and storm!
attendance at the Shaw home were LSES members Jeff & Laura, Brad
& Stacey Rigsby, Stephen Waters, Trey Rowzie, and State Representative
William Daniel. At the Wadill Pavillion tours were given by Buddy
Justice of the LA Department of Natural Resources to approximately 30 women
from a skeet shooting club that were there for an event.
