That's the crazy part, this area of the country RARELY gets as cold as it has been. We would not be here if this was normal. We would have gone much further south down the river.

For example, it's supposed to be 58 tomorrow here and only get down to 40 tonight.

We aren't cold in the cabin, it's just the condensation issues that are driving us crazy.
