Today is the second 2 hr. delay the schools have been forced to initiate...not that much snow, just COLD enough early to freeze the road surfaces. 12 degrees last night. Todays high is to be 23!

It got down to about 12* in Kokomo last night as well.
I might have to think about plugging in my truck!

..."think" about plugging it in?!? I've had the old yellow bus warming nightly since T-day!

When I hit the remote start...
The air intake heater cycles, the heated seats turn on, the heated steering wheel starts warming up. When the engine starts after about 30 seconds the high-idle kicks in and the exhaust brake turns on to help the engine warm up faster!!!

Plus, I don't drive it much, only on trips. I have a PT Cruiser that I use for my daily driver.

You don't sound like a "real" driver to me.

It was a balmy 11 degrees here this morning. I had to put shoes on to go out and put feed in the bird feeders Wink

It's going from bad to worse...by TUE, the daytime high is 18 with 8 at night. Wind chill NOT factored in. This is coming with a bigger winter burst by SUN. I miss 90!

I'm not sure it can get cold enough for me to miss this past summer's heat. We had 15 this morning. Our bird feeders are taking a beaking.

That's true but then you end up looking and feeling like this.

Looks like that would solve the helmet issue Gump is having.
