thanks for the replies, i'm starting to feel better. i'm sure part of it is my own aversion to summer heat in nyc. i'd rather live in an icy fjord and have to start a fire to warm up my developer.
i should have mentioned, all the gear is in pelican cases with desiccant cans. so, i'm not worried about humidity or condensation. I did come across a Halliburton case that the foam got sticky from heat and ended up all over the gear. I don't remember the details or who it belonged to. Could have been someone i assisted for many years ago.
I may move some of it to my wife's office, but then there are potential security issues...
As to putting it in the fridge, great idea, but no room! where do you think all my Fuji-roid and film is?
