    How cold?

    How cold is it in your town or where you are visiting?


    This cold snap has us at 0 deg F now. Earlier it was well below zero. Wind chills down to -30 deg F

    How cold?

    It wasn't as cold today but wind chills are still in the -10 deg range. And we had a fire drill at work.
    Pipes in the building and incoming water main busted.
    Road way cracks are buckling. Can't wait to see the a-pot-hole-ypse from the warm rain, deep freeze & quick thaw.


    My new word : a-pot-hole-ypse - a disastrous time when freezing temps cause multiple multiple potholes to form. Ones large enough to eat your tires alive.

    Coldest I've seen is 40 below in upstate NY. Had to hike a mile to work cause the car wouldnt start. Got to the jobsite with no one there, realized it was a holiday and had to hike back.

    How cold?

    Yah this is the time of the year your battery will die without notice.

    One year before Christmas we were shopping in this type of weather. Was driving a Pontiac Grand Prix coupe(garage kept) and parked out and away from others. Then went in shopping for an hour or two.

    Big mistake!. Parking away from the building and other cars left the car exposed to the high winds. When I came out the engine wouldn't turn, light flickering like crazy... I Popped the hood and could see the terminals bulging out of the battery with acid running down the side.
    Jumping will not work and is dangerous with a liking battery. So, I had to get it towed, cause it was too late to go and buy a new battery.
    What sucked was they tucked the battery inside the fender under the cross support and the air intake and windshield washer container. And I Had to remove it all just to get to the battery in the freezing cold the next day.
