My Mercedes no likey the cold

With temperatures in Asheville dropping down to about zero a bunch last week, we weren't burning much vegetable oil last week. In fact, the veggie car was pissed off about even having to start up in the morning. I made Dr. Wife, MD, drive it to work, because the heat takes forever to start pumping out, and I didn't want to be uncomfortable when I was carting around the kids to a couple of things last week. So I took the Highlander hybrid instead. I could toast marshmallows on the heat vents of that thing.
