This morning it was -22 F. The oil heater didn't do quite as good of a job on this cold of a morning. Looked like it shut off early.

Started to town and the car ran OK but I could tell it was not going to be easy.

Don't talk to yourself without having a defroster (got one-didn't put it in).

Windshield fogged over bad, so do you open a window as I would on a warmer day?

Didn't help much. Wipe windshield continually.

Car getting slower as batteries not as warm as they should be.

Crept to the shop door with 61.8 volts and 24 amps left.

Battery pack popped right back up with a 2 1/2 hour charge.

Drove the truck home tonight.....;)
