Garaged, covered, or naked?

How do you keep your mkc?

In days like this in the northeast I am thankful my baby is resting in the garage.

Guess we're not going anywhere today :-)

Crazy weather here, 58 degrees partly sunny then 5 minutes later pitch black with a downpour, think there may have been some hail too. 10 minutes after that three downed trees and the sun is back out. Fixing to watch an incredible sunset now...

Mkc safe and happy in the garage. I would freak if I had to leave it outside. A cover wouldn't protect it from the trees coming down on it.

Mine is kept in the garage year round. We've had rain here since yesterday which is crazy for this time of the year. My driveway is a skating rink. About an hour ago it changed to snow. The temperature is 0 C but supposed to drop to -15 C tonight and not get much warmer for the rest of the week.

Cooler there with the heat and out of sun's uv rays. And protected from any hurricanes.

Same here. Rain now going to drop to 20 F. No snow for us just all the standing rain is going to freeze now. Then it looks like cold will settle in for awhile. You're in Canada too right country guy?

With the help of a chainsaw and our quad with a winch my husband was able to pull the tree off our driveway so I could go get gas in my MKC and get a powerball ticket :-)

Hmmmm. I think I might be moving to the Lamborghini forum
Could you imagine me with a billion dollars trying to decide on a car LOL.

Think I would be the only woman lottery winner with a garage full of cars instead of a closet full of clothes..oh wait..at a billion I could have both!


But we all know I'll be back here in the forum after Wednesday's drawing, the chances are so slim but hey someone is going to win and the person that wins has the same slim odds as me. It could happen so its worth buying a ticket and having some moments of fun thinking about what cars I would buy .

Yes I am in Canada, 180 miles north of Toronto. The powerball lottery is ridiculous. Why don't they split it up into alot of smaller prizes and thus help out a lot more people?

Wow you are up there :-) I couldn't imagine not having a garage. Do a lot of people have heated garage so their batteries don't go dead or are you on a constant trickle charge?

Most people do not have garages and those that do have so much junk in them that they still have to park outdoors LOL Garages are very rarely heated. That is harder on a car that is driven in an area where salt is used on the roads. The warm garage causes the salt to react quicker with the car metal. My garage is insulated but not heated. Cars that are parked outside have block heaters. My MKC came with a block heater but since it is parked in the garage I do not need to use it.
