    I run the dehumidifier year round. When I got up today, the humidity was 95%.

    My gills are coming in nicely.

    Slim, it's getting more difficult with LED headlamps and tail lamps, they don't generate enough heat to melt the snow and ice like the good old bulbs used to, so you will need a good scraper to keep them clear. If you have a vehicle with LED tail lamps and people seem to be getting too close, then you may want to pull over and check.

    Too true. They're hard to keep clear, and with plastic covered headlights, it's easy to scratch them up scraping the ice off.
    My main thought is that if you're involved in an accident, especially if you get rear ended, and your lights & windows aren't clear, it becomes YOUR fault. You also can't have snow blowing off of your car as well because you're obstructing vision of others.

    Agreed. Only good part here is that it's a bit less humid when it's below freezing.

    Quiet. I was stationed in Kansas for awhile years ago. There's some folks that must really enjoy twisters otherwise they'd move. Tornados are still fairly rare here, but when they hit, it's minutes of Hell, rather than the long days that hurricanes offer. Indiana may not be the greatest place to live, but I can deal with cold and North Coast Lake Effect snow. We get the very end of tornados and hurricanes, so, by the time they get here, they're not too bad. It's mellower than the East, West, or Southern coasts.

    Even better, we're above sea level.

    it’s crazy to me how much difference only one hundred feet makes.

    and my place is above sea level - 12’

    I don't humidify my guitars, I relocate them to a more humid climate. My basement.

    3rd floor?

    we're at 750'. When the ice caps melt, that may not be safe.

    I'd story my guitars in a polar ice cap if I had to. But would rather have them nearby.

    I've learned one thing---no matter where you live, there's some aspect about the weather or the location that sucks. No place is Eden all of the time.
