We had a cold snap. In the past that would have been typical enough, but we just aren't used to it. Our newer car we purchased back in early 2020 when there were still cars to be had, and they were inexpensive (how quickly things change) has a remote starter. What a delight that is! Getting into an already warmed up car on a cold day makes it worth the waste of fuel spent idling. I don't use it often, but am very happy to have it.
But look at the size of those flares. Wouldn't they be magnificent on a dance floor!
