I was driving the other day with my son and he said, "I wonder if someone from like Georgia would know what those are?"

So that's the question, do any of you lifelong southerners know what this is without cheating?

Just day "yes" of you do, I'm actually kind of curious because I remember vividly when I first saw one, as they don't have them in Eastern Montana really.

Yes, from Texas but the part of Texas that uses similar things.

It's a revetment to deflect the jet blast of a fighter aircraft😀

Kentucky is kinda neutral, but I’ll chime in with a yes, I believe I do.

We only see those around flightlines here. Not just out in the open along a road.

Yes. But is from my time in Colorado, not Virginia. Those aren’t necessarily in Virginia. At all. Even at a ski hill.

They have these up in Amarillo because they are needed there ( not to ward off armadillos ).

Yes.

They do look like jet blast revetments, though!

*EDIT* I want to make a Trump joke here so bad, but I'll refrain.

*EDIT EDIT* I reported myself, anyway.
