True story

The Jeep was at the in-laws for the last two weeks. The past week the temperature was hoovering at -10F. Had some time yesterday, drove to check if the jeep will start. The jeep was covered in a foot of snow. Took the battery for a few hours inside, put it back in. Checked if the liquids are not frozen, they were not. Tried to start. Poof - running.

I love my jeep.

These temperatures are not usual in Estonia as well, but the real winter has come.

Its warm today. -15 Celsius. The sedan (diesel) is a bitch to start.

At -35, after two weeks outside the jeep started without a problem.

We were talking about -10 Farenheit (-23 Celsius, more or less). This morning there were -24.3 Celsius, where I live. In some other parts of the country, the temerature dropped below -30 Celsius.

The diesel started easier than the Jeep this morning (at this temperature).
