Ya, it is freaken cold. Located in Southwest Michigan, lows down to -10 with highs around 8 to 10 during the day.
Bad thing for my truck is I have been off work for three months (broke back from fall at work) and truck is sitting out side during this time.
I put charger on from time to time and, try to have engine run once or twice a week when possible.

~65* in the parking garage this morning. Going the let the truck thaw out entirely today so I can pressure wash it when it hits the 40s this weekend. There's a "deep freeze" in North Texas going on apparently, meaning air temps are actually at or below 32*f. Sissies.

It's fun to rub it in! I'd never last up there, either.

I paid my dues. I lived in the Detroit area for 50+ years. I also used to do cold weather testing when I was at Ford. My personal record was -48F. Luckily the winds were calm so that there was no additional windchill. This happened in Timmins, Ontario, Canada.

Looks like we were at 6F this morning. Storms coming, wife asked me to go to the farm and get the generator, JIC since there were warnings of power outages.
