covering with sheets is that sufficient? It actually doesnt say we will have temps that low on weather.com, so I dont know what I should do.

Well, I didn't want to gamble, so I put sheets on everything, even though it seemed to be getting warmer....now Weather Underground is calling for a low of 45.
