back in good ol' minnesota i often had to go start my car 10-20 minutes before i was gonna leave so it would warm up " run ok...i assume peeps still do this when it's crazy cold.
back to california - on my sunday morning run i thought i saw someone doing this (it was around 30), but didn't really believe it. this morning, when i passed a good ol' el camino getting warmed up, i had to shake my head in disbelief. then i saw a man actually lock his car doors while the car was running. it's true - people warm their cars up when it gets around 30 at night.
Pitter Patter started right up " took off...no warming required. though I do have gloves in my car for cold mornings nowadays.
