Default Good Hardwood Info in a Crazy Ottawa Climate

The linked document will be of interest to those dealing with window moisture and hardwood concerns. There is a table which shows the relationship between temp, RH and hardwood moisture content.

In the shaded area you have happy hardwood. Canadian Tire sells moisture metres.

I'm trying to find out how long it takes a hardwood floor to change moisture content by a couple of percentage points. My thinking is that a few days at low humidity during a cold spell wont change the floor much.

If anyone is aware of a document explaining that kindly post a link.
