    Wow. Those temps seem uninhabitable. Does anybody leave the house? I can only imagine those temps are tough on vehicles.

    +1...You folks are tough! It's pretty cold here, too. Fifteen degrees below.......50. It feels cold; Not acclimated yet. 76% humidity is not helping...
    I think that's where the term "cabin fever" originated. :oops:
    I've got one I'll sell you...what are you waiting for? ==c

    Just don't send that cold weather down this way, it's too early. Last couple nights we had upper 20's and the BK has been superb keeping the house just right with only 1 load per day.

    It is strange but we have seen very little below zero temperatures in the last 3 years. Perhaps we are due for a cold winter this year but so far the weather has been relatively warm.

    Has it been three years? I remember cutting a kid out of a car one of those nights. When I got back home it was -23. That's too cold for me, but I really felt bad for him.

    HA HA, Northern kids trick or treat in this balmy weather, or as a family we all snowmobile to a lake and start a big fire on it, roast caribou sausage and catch lake trout. -40 f or c and colder lots of us northern folk have to be at work for sure on the colder of cold days. Gas fitters, oil burner mechanics and utility people. Hospitals etc, Schools do not close here at any temp.. As for right now I am in Maui at the end of my vacation and heading back to -15 and cant wait. Having a great time but too damn hot here unless your swiming 24/7.
    I will get home tomorrow AM and load the BK with Pine to stop the $5.10 a gallon fuel sipping furnace a rest. :)

    12 years ago I went snowboarding for the first time in Arizona. It was the first time I ever saw snow, went snowboarding, or experienced 0 degree temps. Hell it was the first time I experienced anything below freezing. I spent the first 30 minutes trying to figure out how people lived in zero degree temps without becoming ranging alcoholics. Then I spent the rest of the day falling on my ass and face. I also realized that falling face first into snow with a beard turns your face into a gigantic ice cube.

    Lots of new experiences that day. Most of them were painful.

    Had a blast, though.

    Cold but I have a feeling you'll get much colder readings in a month or two. Coldest I ever experienced was -35, that was so cold it hurt.

    I've seen -25. Wind chill was -75 and a blizzard was going on...unusual when it's that cold. So I jumped in the car and drove out of state. I was even dumber then than I am now, if you can believe it. ;lol I was driving on the interstate going 25 mph and heard on the radio that the highway had been closed. ;lol But to endure that on a regular basis...? You guys are studs! _g

    Glad I stayed South.
    South central about 20° - 30° warmer than the interior. (Usually)
    -30°f here is worst we get & usually only for a few weeks in January.

    14°f now, stove has the house at 72 . Got up to 27 today, heat wave for the Interior folks.

    We get to -7 and our cars refuse to start. How do you operate your vehicles?

    Similar to BrowningBAR, I was snowboarding about 15 years ago at Whiteface Mountain, upstate NY, I remember the sign reading -14. Honestly it wasn't that terrible. But I think if we got those kinds of temps here my house would collapse, my car would seize up and my children would turn on me like Lord of the Flies.

    A well tuned vehicle is a must. Both my car and truck usually start OK until it gets to -20F or so. The truck has a block heater that I plug in when it gets really cold. The car can sit in the garage.

    Jumper cables are just as important as a spare tire in this part of the country. :)

    Engine block heaters that heat the coolant, or a heated garage. Maybe synthetic oil? Engine/transmission are warm but the rest of the car is still cold, though, so it's hard on vehicles. I would think that, for one thing, a lot of plastic parts would break...

    I use a semi-synthetic "ford Oil" in the truck, full synthetic in the car.

    When it is really chilly you do want to let your vehicle warm up a bit before driving. Plastic breaking isn't a problem, unless of course you get in a crash.
