    I've taken my Wooki Scandinavian down to 5 degrees fahrenheit with no problems. That's a ways off of its rating, but it didn't at all feel like cold was even beginning to creep in, if that helps.

    I'm interested in the extra foot of width per side available from the Winter Haven, and how necessary or useful it might be. Does your Haven have this extra width?
