I personally believe it never gets cold enough in the gorge to justify a Battery Tender, or a Block heater, but that is just me. -20F Nights in Montana, yeah I was glad I had a block heater, but that was about it. In your case, just make sure your coolant is up to spec (-40*F rated or better). Get some de-icing windshield washer fluid. Become good friends with all the heating elements scattered around your car, including the seat heaters, windshield wiper defrosters, rear window defroster, and rear view mirror defrosters.
Another luxury item, is a remote starter. Nothing better than hitting that button in the morning, and coming out to a nice toasty car.
I'm not retarded, I just don't proofread my posts
