First Night with my PUGs

Sheripoms, yes, you will constantly want to keep your solar blankets shiny side up. Darker colors absorb much more light. In this case light equals heat. The problem is that fabric does not radiate or conduct heat, which is why I would not change the side of the solar blanket I use as there would be no point and no way to gain warmth. The Aussie logic mentioned above is spot on as is chriscowles explanation.

Reflectix is just that. It reflects heat. Little insulation value. Shiny up. Refelct the heat out. Shiny side down reflects heat in. Period

They have a shiny side? Are they not the same on both sides?

No. One side is always silver and the other side can be be different colors.

Nice looking material! Like the white outside. Wish they sold it in smaller rolls, though.
Hope you didn't get any of the flooding a few weeks back like some did on the east side. We didn't get but much more than a drizzle that day out in our area - got lucky for a change.

Damn, I need my eyes checked.. I thought you said "Glad to hear you had no DRAINAGE." Of course, looking at the pics, that is why I thought you said that.
