It's so cold.....

So how cold is it?

It's so cold, I had to spend 15 minutes with my heat gun to open my truck's door this morning.


How cold is it by you?

-15* F. But almost no wind, unlike last night. The car that didn't get driven to the grocery store last night wouldn't start this morning.

A little frost on the windshields this morning, but it'll probably get up around 60 again today, like it did this weekend.

Which is really ticking me off: we had lots of cold & snow before Thanksgiving (early for here), and my new skis were on backorder. Now they get here, and it warms up :-(

My car was on the block heater this morning and only got to 130*F by the time I got to school (1.7 miles away). It was about 4*F with some crazy low wind chill.

It's so cold that I could hear my IMA battery laughing at me when I asked for assist. Also, it's a good thing I have a DC/DC converter that can run all the time, because my 12V battery's resting voltage is ~9.0V (per SGII) with headlights on. I.e. I have a dead 12V battery, and I don't need to fix it until it's warmer out.
