    I'm not sure where you are located so I don't know what products are availible in your area. Every gas station around here carrys lock-d-icer, but you can get away with using rubbing alcohol or the like. Also once the locks are unfrozen, a good high quality lock oil made for cold temps can work miracles for you. Even if this is a freak cold streak where you are, and you don't anticipate further problems, having your locks oiled and working smoothly is always nice.

    Here's a link to a product similar to the one I use. I deal with -30/-40c temps every winter so I know this works.

    Hope it helps.

    Admit it, you miss it a little.

    Very lucky you Doc. Sounds like you've got the best of both worlds then. I'll admitt the -40c temps can sometimes be a little rough and I find myself looking at vacation packages to tropical islands from time to time.

    The only downside is that we are in CA with all the idiots running this state into the ground!
