Not to worry Adam. Mud is just around the corner.

Winter Blast out here in the high Rockies! Luckily the 356 is in a heated garage. The 68 Land Rover is in the elements.
Cheers,
Rob

You could live in Central CA and have the Pineapple Express bring 70 mph winds and and extended power outage. ETA for power restoration is still 2 days from now where I live. Honda generator is getting a good workout.

With the coming of the spring rains and warmer weather, those in the north that store their vehicles in a garage or other type building, watch your Dew Point.
http://forum.porsche356registry.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=43032&start=15

This morning mine went into the red zone, so now I start up my wood stove to bring the garage temperature up above the outside Dew Point.

I should clarify how the alarm operates.
The alarm box is a calculated field and the color is determined by subtracting Outside Dew Point number from the Garage Temp. If the number is positive it turns the box red.

Keep in mind that these vehicles have a lot of mass and they hold their temperatures long after the building has warmed up.
In my case, this morning after the garage temperature got up to 49F my IR thermometer showed that the engine was still at 38F.
