So Ironman, hows the weather? It was 9 degress here with the wind chill being -13 at lunchtime yesterday, I felt like I was going to die just going to the car and back.

It's about 27 degrees right now. It's been that temp ever since this morning.

Your out east, right? Your weather atm is pretty much our January average :)

-50 F tonight....

Had to drive to the store for a couple packs of smokes and gas for tomorrow's drive..... fiddled with my gas cap lock for 15 min, wouldn't open, almost got frostbite, lol.

Drove back home, got my non-duplicate car keys, opened right up, sped back, filled up, and sped back home.

DAMN IS IT COLD. Damn you Canada :) If you weren't so big we'd have a more maritime climate :)

Well, went out at 9AM to start my car, was -20 outside, wouldn't start. It's 1:40PM at it just finally started. :w00t Engine was flooded, had to charge the battery and use a container of isopropyl alcohol to get it started. Of course, all the built-up gas burned away and my engine was just smogging for 5 minutes.

And who was it complaining about 65 degree weather? :) I'd go to the beach in that weather. :):):)

The area I live in is more or less the same as southwestern Ontario or southern Manitoba.

I need to move somewhere warm, like Denmark or the Netherlands :)

I'm biting mad.

For the past week, temperatures have averaged -20. It's -24F outside right now. Haven't been able to get my car started at all unless I charge the battery for an hour or so, then smoke billows out of my engine for 5 minutes because the chamber is so flooded.

:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

On the brightside, we'll get highs of 10 and 11 degrees tomorrow. At least a car will start in that weather.

LOL. Try -25 with a windchill of -40 or -50.

I just changed my oil last night, it was -20 outside at least, no windchill, of course, being in a garage. (unheated)

I had no problem walking a mile to school everyday in this weather..... I guess that means I have better cold weather endurance than my car.
