egg and table cover

edited 2:26AM in EGG Table Forum
Hi. We have a bge in a cypress table. Do you think it's necessary to have a cover for the egg and table during the winter? If so, which...vented or unvented? Does it matter?

    It depends on where you are and how much exposure your eggs get, plus how anal you are about appearances.
    The Egg does not need to be covered at all, however if you get freezing wet conditions, the dome can get frozen shut. The cypress table will not rot, but it will discolor if it is not sealed/varnished. If it does have a finish on it, the finish will have to be re-done that much sooner.
    If your table is pretty big you can buy a cheap tarp and some bungee cords at any hardware/home center and protect it that way. :)
