I know what you mean about the sounds a car makes when it's really cold. Colorado is nowhere near like Minnesota and the Dakotas, Montana. We know a few things about cold, not like you folks, but similar.
The weather was the toughest change when I moved here. That and not being in Denver when they finally won in '97. I left Colorado with the Jackonsville game still haunting my sleep.
