Kudos to the Prius

Would our Prius start? That was the big question when we returned after six weeks to the long term parking at the Minot airport. At this point, the last thing we wanted was car trouble.

I got into the frozen car, pressed the power button, and it started instantly, with no more trouble than if it had just been left overnight.

That's pretty good considering it was -30c when we left it, and -20c when we got back, with likely similar temperatures in between. Six weeks is a long time to sit in those kinds of temperatures. It's also not a new car anymore, it's seven years old, with 125,000 km on it.

Thanks Toyota!
