that was me..heavy rain with the big ..as we call it ( frog strangler)..
drops can impact the matterial so hard it will force a fine mist thru the
fabric..the result is a dampness that begins to build up on all things
beneith the tarp...i have tried canvas ( too heavy) silnylon (good but may
need retreating ever year or so) and tryvek which for me has been the
best..it dosent allow the misting i have found with other matterials...
