Thanks for the advice! I'll keep looking for something a little bigger. I live in south central PA, so if you happen to move in the area, you'll have to let me know!

That said, it's not like a dedicated winter tarp is absolutely required for winter camping. Good site selection and a tight tarp pitch can help a lot, and if you're still worried about wind, a simple DIY ripstop hammock sock can add a lot of warmth and wind blocking under a smaller tarp.
Also, welcome to the forums from a PA native who is hoping to move back to the home front in the next year or so!
