If you're a morning person it's easy to remember to empty the tank and to set it aside to dry in the mornings. Sometimes I can pull that off, but not usually. Then I resort to doing it when I first get home from work. As I adjust to the routine of masking up every night I no longer have to be so diligent about remembering to do it before bedtime.
It's been a bit over two years now, and after lots of gradual improvement I feel I'm approaching a normal sleep pattern again. I'm having fewer and less memorable fragments.
I used to live in upstate NY. Very dry winters. That powdered snow can evaporate over night! Super clear views of the night sky.
A pot of water sitting on that wood stove will help a bit, although there is no substitute for a good humidifier.
