SUPPOSED TO GET SNOW ??? next day or so, did some one piss off mother nature?
this is AZ, no heat in the garage, so its "no mans land" lol.
wanted to shorten the bump stops, or replace with shorter ones, but temps are to low for old folks.
not sure how you "back east" guys deal with these temps,
whole lot tougher than me!

I run a little electric heater in my house 3-car garage when the temp drops. It keeps it from getting down to freezing temps.

I think he means further East Tim. ?
My garage is fully insulated, including door, but no climate control. In the harsh tundra like winters here in DFW my garage rarely dips below 60.

Yes,I know... my 3-car garage is insulated too (including the doors). When we get freezing temps, I run the little electric heater to keep the garage from dipping into freezing temps. I do the same with my stand-alone workshop. This is mainly to keep the liquids stored in both places from freezing. The side benefit is getting into a vehicle that isn’t freezing in the morning.

It doesn’t get that cold here too often, but it does happen. We’ve had some nights get into the teens here. Having said that, it was 75 degrees on Christmas yesterday!
