      And it offers no protection from the sun--a significant issue in some
      areas.

      But in fairness: Plastic is wonderfully inexpensive, easily worked,
      and servicable enough is many conditions.

      General weights per-sq.-foot for the plastic sheeting found in
      WalMart, hardware stores, etcetera (these two thicknesses are the
      ones most suited for tarp use.)...
      3 mil. = 0.23 oz
      4 mil. = 0.306 oz

      So an 8x10 sheet of the 4mil stuff will weigh about 1.5 pounds.
