To Tony G.: I did notTo Tony G.: I did not realize that the temp inside the root cellar was dependant on Geothermal AND surface temp.... my knowledge of Geothermal energy is extremely limited...almost non-existent. I knew surface temp played some kind of role, but I always thought that if the root cellar was 10 feet or more underground, that the temp would remain constant year round...sounds like I was way wrong. TY for correcting me. At any rate, personally, I would prefer a root cellar to be deeper than 10 feet underground...that way it can also be used for a tornado shelter as well.
