The windchill is -3° F. Both Mazdas started fine but they were in the garage all night. The garage isn’t heated but is attached to the house so it stays 10-15 degrees warmer than outside.

The Sunbird is in a non-heated detached garage/shop at my friend’s house so I can guarantee its already weak battery has now died.


I left the kitchen faucet dripping just in case.

I have a coworker in Minneapolis that told us it’s -17° F there and his house is creaking and popping. He got to work from home today, thankfully.

How’s everyone else doing in this year’s arctic blast?
