Winter that is! Last week we set records again. First time since 1908 that we had temperatures in the 80's this late in the year. Average high temp is 59. Still dry and isn't projected to get any better....colder and dryer than normal.
Well I got out of a meeting tonight a little before 9PM and it was 29.
Used the remote start and I'm loving it.... Heater came on, heated seat came on, heated steering wheel warmed up and it was soooooooo nice to crawl into a warm cab. This "white brick" may never win any shows, but it sure is nice to have the creature comforts. Kudos to Dodge and/or Ram for making a truck that an old guy can be really comfortable in.

Got down to 27 F last night. Two days ago the overnight low was 50 F. I don't handle the cold like I used to.
