    My neighbor just got one. I saw it last night when I walked the dog past her driveway. I didn't get a chance to look at it very closely -- just enough to see the "Lucid" badging.

    I was just about to make a comment like "isn't Dreamcatcher practically brand new" but then I saw in the article that it was installed in 1996. I'm getting old.

    Huh. Maybe the painters used a drone to inspect something. It was lying on some pea-gravel when we first saw it. I guess that's a reason to use one - to keep blowing debris up for takeoff/landing.
