Lets just say, the cold that came with the blizzard last Saturday isn't reluctant to leave (Ya know, the one that caused the Metrodome to deflated). Nor is the 20 inch snow drift on my window. The car is cold, even with it kept in the garage.

It's so cold, my temperature needle isn't even active on my drive to school, a 10-15 minute drive.

Mid 20's? I'm north of you in Clearwater (Tampa Bay area) and the low at my house was a relatively balmy 34 degrees.

It's so cold....

...that my IAT of 35 degrees F actually is proof that my WAI is working

...that I finally understand why people complain about the heater performance in Honda Fits

...that I'm making sure not to stick my tongue to the brake rotors I'm replacing!

your temps are always going to be warmer nearer the ocean as the sheer body mass of that much water tends to temper warming/cooling effects.
last night was projected to drop into the high 20's, and it dropped (briefly) to 29*F in my area, but after less than a hour of sunlight had climbed up to 34*
the night previous I personally saw a thermo reading of 26*, while the news reported 28* at the local airport.
my truck was completely covered in ice both mornings, which makes it the 4th time so far this winter season.
now, while some people are most likely saying 'boohoo, 20*/30* wah wah'
I live in SFL primarily because I like staying warm

It's so cold that my frontal area is reduced (from thermal shrinking)

It's so cold that my glow plugs went into hibernation until spring!
