    She sounds like a diesel trying to start!! It's a relatively balmy 10F here this morning, cold enough for me.

    Nice! You got the E-tec or 4-tec in there? What's your take on the 600 E-tec? Thinking I might try that next time, I wasn't very impressed with my last few Polaris sleds.

    That's so lucky!! With the unpredictable weather here in Utah they don't care how cold it is or how much snow there is. I have never had school be closed before. One day the heater broke in one of my classes so we just had class in the hall.

    It's hard to relate to those temps here in So. Cal. If it drops below 50 people start to freak out. High 70's today.

    Driving on ice is so fun! Can get scary though.

    -39 c may sound ridiculous, and yes it is cold, but it's actually equal to -38.2 f.
