Even a simple 100 watt bulb close to the block would be good. Looks like a possible 27 degrees. Stinks big time if freeze plugs go! I'm working right now on a use for my reflectics insulation along with a little heat. Good on you brother for the heads up

The north wind is blowing strong! Temp isn't even low yet and putting a light and insulation under one vehicle a few minutes ago made my fingers numb. Tonight will be cold! Sealark is right. Be prepared.

Oh yeah. Make sure that those nonexistent leaks aren't flammable.

High winds only create the "wind chill factor" on objects containing heat.
Like animals.
Engine blocks will go to the ambient temp sooner but not below.
