Hopefully the car is not wet under the tarp as the tarp will freeze to the paint and when removed it's not a pretty site. If you don't have a car cover it might be better to leave it uncovered.

it was mostly dry but the tarp does have a 'silver' lining so we'll see.. temp is supposed to go up...after it goes down to 0 deg F lol
