Huge differences in temperatures.
I'm not a cold weather person.

Post Office said 3-4 days. My sister and her husband just drove there in two and a half days. I should have had them deliver it.

Dutch, you asked about pre-heating motors with a little fire underneath them. Well, I used to when I was a kid with my first pick-up truck. We had electricity by then but I couldn't afford a block heater. Dad still had to light a fire under the tractor to start it, at that time.
We have block heaters or external recirculating water heaters on all of our machines now. In the recent past, if I got a surprise invitation to go to work with the big truck, I would still heat up the oilpan with a propane Tiger Torch shoved into a 4" pipe with an elbow on the other end.
Small foot, good luck with the movie, and Happy New Year.
