I have been reading about storing tobacco here. you say to keep it in cool dry place. it's 107 in the shade here the only cool dry place with in 100 miles is the refer or freezer.is there another way or is that my only option. Also should it stay damp or let it dry out. Thanks Mac.

Just make sure it is dry enough to rustle when you handle it, but not so dry that it crumbles. Then double bag it, to keep it from getting too dry or too damp. Don't worry about the temp. (Some Connecticut growers ship their wrapper leaf to the Dominican Republic every winter, so it can sweat.) The higher ambient temp will cause it to mellow more rapidly, but as long as it's not damp, it won't mold.
