I had an easy task: to keep avoid having belongings damaged by water. My family lives in stormy Portland, Oregon, where a gap anywhere will be filled quickly with rain. Which is why us dwellers in rain could use all the help we can get in regards to protecting our valuables from rainy weather. Personally, I have a truck, a go-cart, and an ATV sitting next to my home with no protection. To guard them harm I use specially designed canvas Seat cover for a honda pioneer to keep the water out, so my stuff can last longer.
These canvasses do a good job at keeping moisture out, and they are cheaper than purchasing and installing an awning. Too bad all those toys can't be placed in my patio enclosure. They can be tidily folded when I don't need them.
I'm glad my valuables has a way to stand the deluges. I just wish there was something for me.
