That's why I live way down here . . .
I'm better with the hotter days of summer than WAY below freezing.

That temp reminds me when I had a Chevy Surburban in the 80's and winter temps near zero. Starting the beast resulted in lifters clicking and bearing groweling until oil pressure built up after a short while. Thank goodness for synthetic oil.

This years weather has been really strange, usually from december to march the temperature hangs around between 20 F and -25 F but we've had basically weak on weak off of insanely cold then some snow melts, then insanely cold, then some snow melts. It's weird to be able to go outside in a t-shirt in january when temperatures are around 18F
