Barely. I froze my butt off working on a railroad container chasis at the sunoco gas station at Dry Ridge thursday evening. I was just glad I had a place to walk in to get warm while I was working. Took me a half hour just to get both my air compressor and welder to start. The truck driver told me to put vaseline on my face. Said it's like wearing a condom, you can't feel a thing!
We've been laid up with the intestinal stuff that's been going around, so except for a few supply runs, I've been staying out of it. The Ex started right up in the -4 weather without having been plugged in, but it sounded like a can of ball bearings knocking around for the first two minutes. Those injectors really seem to hammer when they're cold!
Well except to get my buddy a set of jumper cables to start his dodge cummins I didn't go outside saturday. Did drive frankenstine to get my kids in connersville, Ind after work friday. It was the longest trip I have made since the whole diesel swap. It made the trip just fine ,wish it had a turbo for some of the hills on Ind. 1 though. But at about 3 grand to put one on and do it right that is wishful thinking.
glad to see most of us made it through ok. I took my wife to work most of those days. I jumped one car for someone in our apartment complex with the ranger. Surprisingly even it started as we had been using the wife's Trailblazer exclusively
