I know my fellow Canadians from the prairie provinces would consider this balmy but this is the coldest we have seen this winter:

(for my American friends -21C is approximately -6F)

The Traverse is always parked in the driveway and my wife's commuter car gets protection in the garage. In any event the Traverse started immediately...I am thinking that 0W30 in the sump was helpful today :thumb:.

Nice, I had -11 a couple of weeks ago. It sat in that for 3 days before using it and it fired right up. :thumb:

-11F is very cold. Where are you located to get low?
I was in northern MN at the time. It's been -30 up there a few times I've been up there.

the happy moment about the BBQ- was that I gave one of our dogs a last 'feast' of 'carne asada'. he ate some. not alot. but he ate.
he passed this morning.

once the sun went down- the mosquitos came out...

That is verry cold. We should have an on going temp competition i.e. who can show the coldest and also warmest (for you rbarrios ;)) temp from the DIC of a Traverse.

I can't post pictures of our Enclave DIC since it is not my DD but the NWS said it was -29°F here in the southern suburbs of Minneapolis this morning.
