Nothing wrong with it being cold...feels rather nice coming out of a structure fire...only thing that sucks is like last nite, we had pure ice on the roads, everything was covered...then it decided to pour out...so pouring rain...33 degrees...night time...we were busy with some accidents obviously but ice in the dark always makes for an interesting ride to the scene :P
