Coolerdor question re: room temp

Yes, I read the sticky, but I still have a question. My understanding of coolers is that they are very resistent to outside temperature. Does this mean that I can place a coolerdor in a cold room (small dark room with large a/c vent) or my dark cool basement without worrying about the room being too cold for the cigars?

I would like to keep the temp inside the cooler somewhere between 65-68 degrees F. Would this be feasible if the cooler is in a room where the temp tends to hold steady at 55 degrees F or perhaps as high as 72 degrees F?

Thanks....

Even at 55 degrees, you won't have any problems. If you're going to smoke straight out of the cooler, you probably want to let your cigar sit out for a little while, in a warmer room, or you might split the wrapper when you light it.

Look at it this way; eventually ice in a cooler melts, so eventually the interior will achieve the ambient exterior temperature.

Gotcha. So I should put the cooler in the cold room and wrap the smokes in a blanket.

Stability is more important than terminal temperature (within reason, of course).

I don't wish to alarm you, but you missed your period.
