The barometric damper is holding up pretty well. Seems capable of sustaining a draft of 0.04" of WC with gusts up to perhaps 20 MPH, then after that the draft rises as it overwhelms the ability of the 6" baro-damper to hold it steady. Right now I'm seeing 0.06" with the largest gusts, and we've just entered the 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM wind advisory time period.

Democracy rests upon the principle that collective wisdom arises from a pool of individual ignorance. A Republic rests squarely upon objective law, and fundamentally upon those laws which restrict the scope and actions of government.
