That depends on which side of zero the 30F is. I got up one February
morning in Rapid City SD back in the mid-60's and wound up taking my
hunting truck to work, nothing else would even think of starting. A
thermometer nailed to a tree about 10 feet from where the pickup normally
sat said -39F. Dressed for it at 5AM, it didn't feel that cold, till I
tried to stir that stick shift into the next gear. It had 50W CMO oil in
it, which just wiped itself out of the way like so much clay, no oil
pressure and a slight rod knock for the first mile, so it didn't get
pushed for rpms, just enough to get it to move. But I got to Skyline
Drive and put KOTA on the air on time that morning...
After that, cold is relative. 30 is warm in some locales.
