Resumed printing after months and there's a lot more stringing.

I just resumed printing this week after a loooong hiatus. I tried printing 2 of these guys and there was a massive string web across the two objects. When I printed only 1 at a time, it was much less stringy, but you can still see that very thick stringing issue at the end there. 

What could be the cause of this? This did not exist when I started printing during the first quarter of this year. 

1- Filament is too wet? They have been in those airtight plastic bins, but my decadent probably needs a refresh. It's not super humid here, but could be an issue. What's the best way to confirm if it is wet?

2- Nozzle issue? Do I need to take the nozzle off for a cleaning or switch it out? Is this hard to do?

Thanks in advance.

You got it right in one.  Dry that filament.

Cheerio
