    It's been a pretty consistent -30ºC here. Some times colder with the wind chill.

    Every morning my Taco sounds like it's going to need a jump, but every time it turns over happy as a clam.

    as long as it started, its not too cold! up in WI we're used to vehicles turning over just fast enough to barely start. could always get a battery with more CCA's if its a problem. it was 15 below here for a few days, truck always started fine (although slowly). i always let it run at least 5 minutes before i drive too

    2007 and 2008 were actually cooling years...coincidentally, Al Gore blames these on Global Warming as well--he's pretty crafty that one...

    I was in Chicago on a business meeting one night when it got to -56 below wind chill. The reporter who you could just barely see through the layers of clothes was warning folks to NOT go outside without your skin covered up, period. He had a piece of fresh chicken skin he took outside with him. In seconds he could snap it in to! I drink can cokes and all I had to do to keep them 40 degrees is lay them near the sliding glass door! I get up early so I had a good HOT shower. A few minutes later the entire plumbing froze up!

    I did have my TPMS light come on for a day then go off. It was like a 40-45 degree drop day. We have days here in Texas, many of them, where we use the Heater some on the way to work and the A/C on the way home.

    I was freezing my ass off today!!! It was 55* last I checked. Im going to get some Hot Chocolate. For all of you that are in some wired - whatever degree weather, PROPTS TO YOU! If I was in anything colder than say, 30*, I would draw a nice warm bath tub full of water, filled nice and full, and after I climbed in, I would drop a plugged in toaster in with me. Just reading about this minus this, and minus that degree temps is makeing me shivver. :eek:

    When I moved from Tucson to Maryland last year, it was in December. Left the first week of December -- the highs were still in the 70's. Came to Maryland and the high's were in the high 30's. I was colder than shit.

    This year, I think I'm used to it. I worked this morning outside on the truck in 20 degree weather. Of course, I had polypros on... :D

    Point is, I think you get used to it... I think I have.

    It's supposed to get down to 49 degrees tonight and with the windchill it's 49!!! I had to turn on my wall heater. Brrrr!
    I used to be a snowbird. I grew up in Michigan. My parents moved out here in 1980 and I've stayed since.

    Whenever I get a yearning for cold, I just drive up to the mountains. Then I'm like "Oh yeah. I forgot about that..." and drive back down.
