"Fraidy Hole" Provides Shelter From Storms
Unpredictable weather extremes over the past couple years have kindled a strong interest in storm shelters. Garfield Equipment, Inc. in Enid, Okla., created the "Fraidy Hole" to fill that need.
  It consists of a piece of 8-ft. dia. pipe made out of 1/8-in. corrugated steel. It's covered by a flat steel plate lid and will hold 8 people comfortably. It's equipped with a ladder and handrail, an air vent hole, and a lantern hook.
  The shelter installs in the ground with about 1 ft. of the pipe sticking up to keep water from getting in. When installed properly, the lid is water tight.
  Its main purpose is to prevent injury and death during tornadoes.
  The unit sells for $1,245 plus S&H.
