I had this idea just now. Maybe the number of layers matters more than how tight the edges fit to the ground. Four layers of plastic here. In terms of heat loss maybe this is equivalent to one layer airtight to the ground... but four layers loosely fitting to the ground is easier. Idk. Something to think about. We dont get blizzards here our issue is mostly radient heat loss. Our humidity can be very low, so our dewpoint can be low, so we can freeze at night 10 months out of the year. Here it's mostly a radient heat loss issue, not a cold air issue. Some things to think about. Who has time for that!
