I live in an apartment block on the third floor (no risk of flooding up here) and my small collection of cacti live on my south facing balcony year round in a modified Wilkinsons mini greenhouse (more like a small vertical cold frame actually ). I have replaced the flimsy plastic cover with polycarbonate sheets with the object of keeping them dry rather than warm. As a consequence I keep a few cold hardy specimens like Gymnocalyciums (baldianum, gibbosum, bruchii) and Escobaria (vivipara, missourensis, minima) etc.
Once the weather improves I will take a picture and post it for anyone who might be interested.
