Jumping Your Car, Cold Weather Advice

For all the folks that will be having the below zero temps this winter and according to,

The  Farmers’ Almanac  “The 2015 edition of  the winter of 2014–15 will see below-normal temperatures for about three-quarters of the nation. A large zone of very cold temperatures will be found from east of the Continental Divide east to the Appalachians. The most frigid temperatures will be found from the Northern Plains into the Great Lakes. The coldest outbreak of the season will come during the final week of January into the beginning of February, when frigid arctic air drops temperatures across the Northern Plains to perhaps 40 below zero.”

Here are a couple of tips. Park your car so the front is accessible for jumping. Also if that is not possible and you need a jump. You can connect two pair of cables to make it reach. Just make sure to connect negative to negative and positive to positive all the way. I am so not looking forward to this winter.
