You guys live in a pretty rough area for winter.
It's pretty cold here too and my car TPWS light came on on the drive home and the water temperature didn't make it above 1/4 so the cabin never warmed up and the steering wheel was ice cold. But this is New England. Next car - either get a 6-cylinder engine or a cold weather package (heated mirrors, steering wheel, front seats). So tomorrow I have to get out my tire pump and attach the hose to the valve stem and add air to the tires. I also have to measure the pressure with a gauge. Of course this usually means taking off my gloves as it requires some dexterity and, of course, the high temp for tomorrow is around 13 degrees. Toyota cheaped out in the latest Camry. My old Camry had a TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) that told you the pressure of each tire. The new cars come with a TPWS (Tire Pressure Warning System) which only tells you if there's a problem. So you have to check each tire manually to see which needs air or has too much air. The higher equipment models only have the TPMS. It's implemented in software so it's just a software switch to turn on. It's something that I'd pay for if they could add it via an update.
I generally encourage everyone to be active in some way because it generally makes it easier to age gracefully.
