Hubs in the wind
One thing I would like to know is if anyone has a good way to keep the anchors covered so they don't melt out and start to give. On a sunny day this will happen. I usually just set a bucket beside them so they are shaded and its no problem.
As a temporary fix I'll tie the side that is catching the most wind to my auger if I've walked out or to my truck if I've driven out. Then I pack the wind blown side with snow and pin that last remaining corner down.
Inside my hub I place my tank top heater in the corner that gets directly blasted by the wind. The tank itself will give a little extra support when the wind really slams into that side. I also set anything else that might have a little bit of weight on the windy side for extra support but usually in heavy winds I have that wall roped to my truck/auger or to the ice.
I've set mine up by myself in 25-30 mile an hour winds. Patience is needed in conditions like that but it is possible. One thing you never, ever want to do is place your hub on the ice where the wind is blowing directly into the door. You open that baby up and she'll take off on you. Luckily I've never had that happen but I've seen it happen to others.
