I continue to reflect on ways to steer sparks in a safe direction, i.e., out
the garage door. One suggestion was to hang up cheap blue tarps, but I was
concerned about how easily they would melt, and whether they might catch on
Now I see that HF has a 9' x 16' canvas tarp on sale for a low price.
Hmmm -- I would think the weave on the canvas would offer places for sparks
to lodge and begin to smolder, but would there be some sort of inexpensive
spray that would make it fire-retardant?
