If you keep doing silly things like that, you will become a patient in your own facility. I hope Shrek had the good sense to drag your back inside.

2 hours worth of shoveling last night with 16'F outside temps. I was very ready for bed when it was all done. I've already got snow up to my house windows, and 5 foot snow banks, and it's only been snowing for less than a week. This is gonna be a long winter. On the plus side, it should help strengthen this old body, maybe replace some of the unwanted lbs. with lean muscle tissue.

I could use some smoldering chicken, or hot wings right now. Fired up the car this morning. My transmission mad that whining noise that it makes when it's very cold outside. I looked at the thermometer. It read -5.7 F. We've gone from the snowy weather of January to the frigid temps of February in less than a week. By Christmas it should be summer again.

Your post gave me a flashback!

Years ago we used to keep a mechanics lead cord with a 100 watt bulb burning under the hood of the car at night to keep the engine slightly warm. At least once a winter someone would hop in the car and try to drive off without removing it.

Just use a heavy duty sauce pan to suit your needs. Fill about just half full with oil and fry away!
We have one pan relegated to deep frying. I have two Fry Daddy's, but they are not always ready with fresh oil.

When I was in my upper teens, and in Judo class, I'd get all hot and sweaty, open the gym door, and stand out in the snow in my bare feet, with nothing on from the neck to the waist, ans stand there for several minutes to cool down. I weighed in at less than 100 lbs. back then, and so I know it wasn't body fat insulating me. I just have always had a hot metabolism. My dad was the same way. But just as it makes winter more enjoyable, it makes hot summers miserable for me. I'd rather be comfortable in both. But you just have to live with what you're given.

Tonight, I've been given a mini blizzard, with temps in the teens. I'm going to go home and have to shovel just to park the car in my driveway. 5 p.m.. has come, and work isn't over yet. I won't get paid for what I do when I get home though, except for the benefits I'll get from the rigorous exercise of shoveling lots of snow, for better than an hour.

Be careful. I heard at least three people have died from over exertion doing what you are doing.

I had a diesel once that needed to be plugged in during very cold weather.
To keep the oil warm and ready to operate.

We haven't had any snow so far. I don't know about the western half of the state. I can do very well without the snow or cold. As I age and get older, I mind the cold weather even more. It seems like the cold just gets into my bones and stays there. I love warmth.

One winter, I had to go out to the car, and turn on the engine. I let it run for twenty minutes to warm up the engine compartment. This would give me enough residual warmth to fire up the beast in the morning. It was sub-zero weather that year for a month straight. Last winter it was hovering between sub-zero and 5 degrees for the entire months of January and February.

Ah, the beauty of a remote car starter! Start you car from the warmth of your home and it automatically shuts off at a pre-set time.

Growing up in northern North Dakota, we had to plug our cars into the block heaters every night! Remote starters weren't even a twinkle back then.
