According to the National Flag Code, The American Flag may be flown during inclement weather if an all weather resistant flag is used. Had you also done a bit more reading of comments you would realize that these patriots in fact did use an all inclement weather material flag giving them correct protocol to fly during inclement weather.
The electric bill?????? What do you think, they just ran an extra long drop cord across the Waterway???? My goodness, Im Earth, have we met??? The Amrican Flag may indeed be flown 24 hours a day if there is a light illuminating it through the night. If you had paid attention you would know that the pole has a high powered SOLAR light attached to it. Which means....you guessed it...NO ELECTRIC BILL!!!!!! Maybe you should check the Flag manuel, and maybe YOU should show some RESPECT!!!!!!
