The oil filled radiator heaters are fairly inexpensive, and much safer than the little blower types. They also seem to be a bit more efficient.

I wouldn't worry about the water in your battery. Do you plug in your car at night? Rather than drink from the tap, drain your lines and for drinking water take one of those cheap water jugs with you. Think of it as a metal tent with heat, lights, and a camp stove. Forget about using the plumbing during the winter.

Moffett Railroad history

If you read the history of the Moffett Road, you'll find that the rails in the mountains would be surrounded by snow/ice melt during the day, and then freeze at night causing the rail to split along the length of the rail-causing many derailments right in the rail yards...Caused them to increase the cross section of the rail-I believe from 80 lb rail to at least 100 lb rail (per ft) -oh the Moffett was a standard guage line that climbed out of Denver (near Boulder) up and over the Continental Divide-the Moffett tunnel is still in operation, but originally, the rail line went up and over the top. Yep, it can get cold there. Frazier, CO is one of those frosty places....Rest in peace, Mr. Bollinger, author "Rails that Climb"
