How does this pass code?  That's like a chimney, does not appear to have any structural support at all.  It's all for looks but that surface area is like a sail.  A 70mph gust is 20psf, for example.

That strip mall has been there as long as I can remember.  Looks to have metal studs and probably had an updated facade at some point, but It was standing at least in the late 80s.

Went on a 2mi hike.  WeatherBug says -7F with wind-chill of -34F but I'm not sure I buy it's that cold.  Out of the wind you really don't feel cold at all.  But hiking into the wind on the ridgetop I could see getting frostbite relatively quickly without protection for your face.  Further down the mountain 200-300 vertical feet there's hardly any wind so it isn't bad.  I gotta cut some more wood for the stove and cook up some sausage now.

Nice setup with your "tent".  Almost looks like an yurt with the short side walls.  Enjoy the experience.  I love getting out in extreme weather but my better-half would want nothing to do with your excursion.  Enjoy.
