    I did this lastnight and tripped the fuck out of my buddy.... I thought more people knew about this :lol:


    If it's colder then -20 (iirc)


    Boil some water, pour it in a glass, go outside and throw said water into the air.


    See what happens

    I was the stupid one who decided to write my name in a snowbank while pissing at -40c. And they warned about exposed skin freezing quickly.

    :agree: :happysad:

    Truck block heater came on at 6:30, car does not have a block heater.

    Going out soon to try them again. I should have left the truck running all night.:hsugh:


    Not really a big deal I can work from home.

    Damn - surprised it didn't start. I find out here I have to plug in and run synthetic oil.

    The car does start without being plugged in, as I found out last week when I came out from work when it was -30 and found someone had unplugged my block heater.

    Why have the heater come on at 6:30 and not leave it on all night?

    I usually leave it on all night when I am using it but I was planning on driving the car and didn't think I would need the truck today.

    Poor planning on my part.
