Default Winter in NorthEast

Been below freezing in New Jersey since Christmas. Relative humidity in my house has been less than 15% for over two months. Ask me if I love my Cargo.

Iím in southwest Florida and I never worry about humidity and my wood guitars. We are running our heat and my skin is dry so I know the humidity is really low. Definitely concerned about my wood guitars, but not my Sable.

I used to live in the frozen northland; I remember the bitter cold, snow and ice. I wish I was as tough in the varying weather as my carbon fiber guitars.

It was about 70ļ here today in the Tropical Tip. I feel for you folks who have been getting hammered with this bitter cold and snow. Sending warm wishes your way.

Iím in NY and Iím all wood right now and even with a furnace humidifier my twin humidifiers are working hard to keep my man cave at 50% humidity. I have a Rainsong coming in a few days but Iíll still have to feed the other guitars until summertime.

I grew up to 8th grade in Maywood N.J. and then we moved to Lake Wallenpaupack in PA. Hell on guitars when your young and don't understand. Then I live in L.A. for 35 year's and guitar's love it there. Now in Bryan ,Texas and no winter grief here either.
