    I livr in minnesota, -30f is not uncommon.

    the hard drive below -20 or so doesn't like to spin up right away, but give it a minute.

    to get moisture on an item from condensation you need a colder item in a warm air enviornment. in the winter this is hard to have happen on purpose, I think you're safe
