    Quoted from Silverballer:

    Holy moly man, you really do only get about two days a year of decent weather. You folks up North are hardcore. I get all bummed out when it gets below 50 degrees anymore, but I am getting older. After seeing your pics I realize that I have got nothing to bitch about. Take care this winter and I hope you all get through it safely.

    Snowmobiles are mandatory where we live.

    Nice and balmy in Ontario with all the money laundering heat coming from the west.

    I was in Bemidji, MN one year when it was -36 ºF (no wind.)

    I flew back to St. Louis where it was 30 ºF.

    I was now 66 ºF warmer but it was still below freezing.

    Is that a heater or a fish finder, or both. Nice fish!

    Quoted from mcluvin:

    One is heater, the one that looks hot
    The one by the hole is a "flasher", a type of fish finder, its like fishing in a video game, you can actually see your lure on the dial and when a fish gets near its a larger spot on the dial, its a blast. (and you can tell if fish are around)

    Heading back out today to the lake!!!! The whole fam is coming this time, gonna fish, have a weiner roast, and crush beers with friends (socially distanced of course outside!)

    This makes my home state of Michigan look like a tropical paradise. I remember one week in the early nineties when the temps were so cold where school was finally canceled due to ridiculous wind chill (like -40 F or -60 F or something in that range...can't remember exact number). At least you can add layers when it's cold. Summers down in North Carolina are long and brutal. I'll take cold over hot.

    Cold is fine as long as you don't lose some digits.

    Feb 8th, arrived late for work. Which only happens every 5 years or so. The pin hauler didn't want to start. Even my 20 year old battery booster gave up its ghost with a final wisp of blue/black smoke.

    20210208_091735 (resized).jpg

    It never got warmer than -25 C.

    #220 8 months ago

    Don't you guys use an oil plug or other style engine heater? Do you put a radiator air flow block so it will heat up faster?
    I was watching Overlander Paul Marsh going through Siberia and they never shut the engine off.

    Most new vehicles sold in Canada have block heaters installed during assembly. But not all of them as the block heater is an option. I didn't plug it in on Saturday. There are also heated battery blankets, electric interior heaters that one can get from most parts stores.

    #222 8 months ago

    I'm in SouthCentral AK, and -30 is pretty damned cold. Colder in the interior, tho.

    My buddy owns a GMC/Chev dealership, they used to come standard in Canada with block heaters, Now he has to make sure every vehicle is ordered with one.

    I bought an '08 Enclave, a lady in Regina that owned a implement dealership had. I bought it on a -40 day, searched the engine compartment in the dark outside for an hour or two looking for the cable tied up cord, couldn't find the fucker, called the dealer I bought it from, he found the build sheet - no block heater ordered/installed. The lady never parked it inside a heated shop. I had the dealer install one on their dime.

    Question for all of you living up in the extreme cold. Does your windshield wiper fluid and squirters continue to work? Here in the Midwest they treat our roads with chemicals/salt to keep them from freezing. As a result we all drive around with a grey slime on everythng. The squirters freeze up, the windows slime up and it is very difficult to navigate. As a bonus you can almost taste it while you watch your vehicle slowly rust away.

    You can buy -40 Celsius washed fluid here not sure if it’s available there?

    Quoted from rwmech5:

    No use in using windshield washer fluid at that temp - it would come out as vapor if it made it out at all.

    Quoted from pb456:

    -40 washer fluid is not for de-icing a windshield.
    Remember that most washer fluid bottles are the engine bay, which is going to warm up the fluid. When the cars windshield is warmed by the defrost system, the windshield will not be -40 degrees. Using the -40 or -15 degree washer fluid on a cold frozen windshield will only create more ice.

    Say it with me now.... "Climate change" and "more extreme weather events".

    Global warming is an excuse for those that choose to ignore reality.

    It was +33 ( 91.4F ) on Wednesday. Unreal.
