Just like the winds that blow through Wyoming, the thoughts posted here are varied - some a strong tirade and others merely a whisper.
Boy, that sure is weird! No clue what anyone was thinking when they put that up.
So strange as well as the other two you showed us.
That is hilarious! Do you suppose it was done just to make people stop and wonder?
A straw for a dragon to drink from?
Fireman could only wonder if they are using it as an exhaust vent? would need to see the bottom of it. ???
That is truly odd. Maybe there was bigger plan that was abandoned?
Looks like someone didn't finish the job. ?
Someone obviously didn't know what they were doing, or, did it on purpose to stump other people. Crazy.Blessings,Betsy
Imagine me with dog ears: One ear up, one ear down, head cocked to the side. I don't get it?!?
The installer learned modern math in school? The installer is a fan of "alternate facts" and therefore this downspout is alternately FINE!
It could be the pipe from a radon mitigation system. They need to clear the roof line.
Maybe they want the neighbors to go crazy wondering WHY?!?!!???:) LOL
I agree with a previous comment, it's probably a radon mitigation system. We have one on the back side of our house here in Ohio in a similar style, only bigger around. I had never seen or even heard of radon until we looked at this house. We moved from Idaho from with higher levels of radon than we have here. It occurs naturally in the earth so it's everywhere.
