Re: Cars in ER

You guys are making the cold start problem way too hard.

Just get a Sears Die-Hard battery.

Didn't you see their ad on TV ?

Had our first fire last night. Can hardly wait for the real cold and some snow to come! We had 5-6 inches of rain couple weeks ago - think how much snow that would be!

I'm in South Minnesota so much milder here.
Never had to use plugs or get exotic with car care. Not a problem as long as the cars are garaged, not left out to long when out and about and batterys not old.
I'm not trying to encourage anyone to live here - you really have to be a special person to survive and thrive here...

I think I understand how you feel. We've turned off most of the ceiling fans, we've been closing our windows at night (I need to clean out the tracks again), we put a Vellux blanket on the bed, and I've started wearing short-sleeve t-shirts instead of tank tops. The bunny is growing his winter coat, too.

Next month I'll probably have to start wearing socks.

Our kid wants to learn everything there is to know about driving, because in less than a thousand days she'll be eligible for a learner's permit. So yesterday she asked about a switch on the dashboard that she's never seen us use... the rear window defroster. It's probably the first time it's been used on our 12-year-old car. I didn't even know where to look for the indicator light.

To this day I still have a blanket, candle, waterproof matches and a large can (to put the candle in) in the trunk. You learn never to leave the car when its that cold, just wait for help.

OTOH, during the nice months, over by Red Lake, caught some of the sweetest tasting walleye I have ever had in my life.

Trade offs.
