Winning while I'll work from 9am till 1pm on Saturday.
150% paid though...
Afterward it's shopping time! (spend the money I just earned, tsk tsk)

Two years ago it was -55C one morning, the car started with 5W-30 oil; it was plugged in to the outside plug in. (115 volts.) The car will start without the plug-in down to -30C.

Yesterday I upped the overclock on the PC from 2.84GHz to 3.51GHz, I'd swore I'd aimed at 3.68GHz, but something didn't quite go as planned.... But the i5 750 cpu temps while doing 3 wu's at one time seem to holding around the mid 40's so far thanks to the Corsair H70 cpu water cooler. Soon enough I'll push the 16GB of G.Skill DDR3 1333 ram some more to about 1500MHz and try for 4.00GHz!

Our cars don't have plug in options. We really aren't geared up for weather below about -10C. Our infrastructure just isn't designed for it. The temps some areas are seeing at the moment will halt our trains, close our schools, burst our water mains and generally cause chaos. Friday the word of the day will be "snowmageddon" as a country wide fall is expected and many areas, mine included, have no snow clearing equipment.

My exposed copper water pipes are all insulated, one of these days I'll need to spend some money on new insulation, as what I have is slowly aging due to the sun, the rest of My pipes are cpvc and I don't worry about them, as those pipes are designed with extremes in mind, HOT or COLD. Most cars in the US have that as an option when New or could be retro fitted if it's a part that can be added in later to ones car or truck, as it can get quite cold here in the US, brr....

Winning before going to work. Oh and it's cold but I do have a plug in block heater and seat warmers. Life's little luxuries.

Wimps.

In northern Minnesota, North Dakota, and Montana, everyone has a block heater and public parking spaces have outlets so you can plug in. Down here in Chicago, some people add block heaters but only use them at home overnight.

Vic, are your pipes on the outside of the house?

Right now it's 23F here, which isn't low enough to worry about unless it stays that low for a long time. This weekend we have a predicted high of 12 on Monday and a low of 0. That's when I worry about some stuff, but not my car.

We are having a snow drought, but it's snowing this morning 1,000 miles to the south in New Orleans.
