Although it is pretty cold here, too
Hey y'all, let me just throw out a quick gloat about how I managed to leave the Interior on business at exactly the right time to miss the cold spell. Whoo-hoo!
Not much to tell you from here, but I think I've confirmed the fact that although the Interior gets ridiculously cold, the coast certainly can compete because of: 1) Actual moisture in the air and 2) Wind.
But someone could make a fortune if they came up with an inexpensive kit to put an oil pan heater and block heater on a snowmachine. (Or whatever the equivalent useful item might be.)
