The outdoor temperature dropped to 36 F last night at the homestead. It is time to get religious with putting a humidifier in your violin case. No excuses, since I have posted a method of making your own for a few dollars under a separate thread (I think that you would not need the gortex fabric if you had an inexpensive violin, since I have used several diy humidifiers for over a year without any of the gel spheres collapsing).

It's been getting cold here, too. Haven't flipped on the furnace yet (though I should, haha) but have been running a space heater in my practice room before I practice, so it is humidifier time. I like to make sure I have a humidifier in my case right before the furnace starts running, so that it hopefully maintains some of the humidity from the summer, rather than trying to re-humidify after the furnace kicks on.
