    Well, I just got back from your area and can not provide any additional information. The nights it stormed bad I wimped out and stayed inside the RV. Humidity, severe T'storms, hail, trees crashing down, stream overflowing - I think I made the right choice

    Here's a pic from underneath after a big storm. I was in the swath of a derecho, so it was crazy. Stayed totally dry so I can't complain, but still doesn't seem to shed like other tarps I've had.
