    Ya I kind a wish I had a engine block/ battery heater right now. I don't know how people deal with this consistently. Though they say the same thing about me and weather in the north east haha

    Don't have the plug-in model. Luckily it has been starting ok but it's been parked in the garage and it's even cold in there.

    Crank that heat on in the garage!
    Just checked mine and its a work comfortable 68 degrees
    Wish my garage was more like a 6 car, but so happy whoever built it stuff it full of insulation on times like this, pretty easy to heat.

    Wish I had heat in there. The garage is out back and insulated but no heat. Wish it was bigger. There's a camper in there and a jeep and a bunch of tools and crap in there. If I cleaned it out I could fit 4 small cars maybe because it is deep. Yeah, a garage can never be too big.

    I don't have a garage at all :(

    It was 5° when I checked at 7:30 this morning. All the way up to 24° now. My brand-new battery keeps starting mine like it's 70° outside, fortunately. Drove mine last night up to the airport to pick up my best friend's mom (my second mom), take her 1½ hrs away to her house and bring my best friend's husband (he drove their car home from MI) back near my house to his parents' place. Through 40-50 mph winds and drifting snow. It was fun ;)

    Had to laugh a little when I saw a Craigslist add for a 2002 KJ with the Daystar lift being sold by a dealer. They stated they took a KJ with engine issues and decided to "have fun" with it.

    I'm not sure what the KBB value is for a 02 KJ with almost 200k miles. It was probably less than what they wanted.

    Getting frustrated!
    Don't fight it you won't win. Just let it have it's way with you. :). It will dump you soon enough and move on to the next.

    Drove an hour and a half away on a sheet of ice the whole way for my son's basketball tournament. Didn't turn out to be much of a tournament because only two teams showed up. They just played each other twice. The other team won the first game and my son's team won the second. So I guess it's a tie? :shrug:

    Notified I got a like. Investigated, then saw this post. Not sure of I put it in this thread but... we DID wind up with another cat.

    little all-black kitten showed up this past August/September. Hung around until after Halloween, so now we have 4 cats. HIS name is MeowMeow (never let a 6 year old name your pets.)

    That's it! NO MORE CATS! 4 is enough!.

    I remember driving in to work (Marlon - down 26 mile road from Mound to North Ave) back in Dec 2000 in my Bronco. Back then there was NOTHING on that road. Had a blast...snow was almost 1/2 way up my 32's and I was tearing through it well.


    So, I am happier than a pig in shit that I actually got off my ass and fixed the snowblower this week. Been broken for 2 years and really didn't have a need for it during winter '11 and '12.
