For those of us with arthritic fingers these things can be torture! I am fearful that my gel battery is toast as I tried to get it out before the cold hit over 2 weeks ago. Today was our 2nd day above zero since. The lowest was minus 23, w/o wind chill. I did get a ride in on Feb 2 as it was the warm before the storm of 52 with NO WIND !!! Here that is saying something This time of year we call them 50/50 days.
