You guys are enjoying the warm weather too much so we're sending down an Arctic front next week. The Canadian prairies along with North Dakota and Montana will be in in the minus twenty F range sometime next week. Not sure how far south this will reach. laugh

Even in our region the temperatures are forecasted to go down as the week progresses. With moisture coming in from the ocean snow is possible by mid week or so. We won't get the below zero temps but those places that will are used to it anyway.

As long as it's not - 76 then I'm fine. Any colder and my redline 0w20 won't pour/pump. This so far has been mild. It was in the 50s this previous weekend.

If it gets to -76 you likely got bigger worries, like your plumbing, than your oil pumping....

How do you know Redline will pump down to that temperature?

We've had a mild winter this year. I'd rather it be cold. The constant freeze/thaw and rain means my yard had never dried up! I've had standing water in my back yard since October. I also have to do a bunch of plumbing in my crawlspace. I prefer to do this when it's really cold out since all the creepy crawlies are dormant.

Yep, it's not like the oil will pump until it hits right at -76 and then it won't.

Yeah, the longer range outlook (back 1/2 of the month) was looking interesting. But that would be pretty typical of late January, so whatever.

Weather is very unpredictable. It's been like that since the beginning no matter how hard we try to predict it. I've been on the Bering Sea when it was flat as a pancake and still and 24 hours later we were in 30 foot seas.

Yea, to me that also makes weather exciting. I've heard how crazily treacherous the Bering Sea can be - I'm glad I never had to be on a LCS during a storm there.
