Thanks. But when I read the article I got the impression the design was done in Texas by a company owned by a Canadian company.  But maybe all that is irrelevant as the authorities don't seem to know what happened, unless I missed something.

As an aside, I just read recently where Canada (population 33 million) is the 4th largest exporter of engineering in the world.

 I certainly did not intend to criticize anyone, much less condemn them.  I was merely responding to Bill Allen's question about design in Texas ... and my statement was factual.

        What I want to know is this: Doesn't anyone design for wind
       in Texas?

       One little poof of wind, and an entire structure comes down?
