we have these cool things called Block Heaters - they keep your engine block warm so that the car will start. You plug it into an outdoor outlet when it gets to about -15C or so. We do have cold weather oil. My husband usually lets the car warm up for about 10 mins .. in that time he shovels what ever snow was left behind the car by the snow plow. We don't have a long driveway so it's not usually an issue, my husband can usually clear the driveway and stairs in 30 mins tops .. but it depends on the density and accumulation of the snow.Originally Posted by roseskid
Sometimes the hardest part about winter is finding somewhere to throw all of that snow when you are shovelling.
