Wouldn't be surprised, it goes down really slow in cold weather. But I opened it up in my garage (where it was stored during the storm) where it was right around 45*.

Yeah. Something about the fabric shrinking and being tighter and could damage stuff.

I already had an account with Photobucket. That's what I use.

Sign up at:

http://beta.photobucket.com/?fromLegacy=true

Upload your pics from your PC to Photobucket, once uploaded, you can choose your pic from your album on Photobucket and you can find the HTML Code or Image Code, there's a Window on the right hand side - "Image Links" copy your Code of choice and paste into the message in the Forums...just left click on the Code - it will then let you know it was copied.

Image Code:



HTML Code:

 photo DSC09476.jpg

Just showing either Code will work fine.
