Subject: RE: need advice flute, recorder, cold weathe
" 54 is ordinary-to-warmish in the UK" Right. That's why Henry VIII had scores of recorders and had courtiers tuck them inside their garb to keep them warm till he needed them.

It's just occurred to me that this probably explains the elaborate draping, pleating and folding of Tudor garments.

Maine Dog: Sucking the moisure out is not an option. I loathe that! I will get some Dupranol and some wine. Thanks for the tips.

Paul: I don't expect it to be as cold as 54K, even if it is Minnesota. It's May, after all.
