Yes it is cold in my part of Alberta. It is even colder in other parts of the province.
I am kind of amused when I drive to work in the morning listening to the radio and hearing them talk about the cold. This happens every winter, we get at least one nasty cold snap during this time. It can hardly be a surprise, after all, this is Canada.
Most of my driving life my vehicle has been parked outside. In my much younger days I was the remote car starter for my dad, and sometimes mom, and that graduated into adulthood for me being my own remote car starter. I never bothered getting one of those installed in any of my vehicles. I had been trudging outside in the cold to start vehicles for years so far so no reason to stop now. Now in my fifties I am grateful to have heated underground parking, it came with the place.
In the meantime I am hunkering down and riding out this deep freeze which should break this coming weekend.
