With the area facing a bitter cold front moving in today, it may be tempting for folks to hunker down at home.
Temperatures tonight are expected to drop to as low as 16  below. All time record in 1918 was minus 22 degrees. Jan. 19 and 20 of 1994 it was 20 below for two days in a row.
For those who have to get moving, having reliable transportation that will start and keep on trucking is a must.
There are a few things to check to keep vehicles running smoothly.
According to Brent Sockman, of Sockman Automotive in Bowling Green, make sure you have the right protection level of antifreeze, have the battery tested to make sure it’s fully charged, and check to make sure your tires are properly inflated.
“That’s about the only thing you have to do with today’s cars since they’re so sophisticated. They don’t freeze up like they used to in the old days,” Sockman stated.

Wood County is one of the strongest agricultural counties in Ohio, with a variety of crops and livestock produced.
Members of the Wood County Farmers Union are a united force working towards the sustainabililty of family farms.
Despite the strengths of local agriculture, there are obstacles on the horizon which can challenge producers.
At a recent meeting of several members, along with Roger Wise, president of the Ohio Farmers Union, they spoke about some of the challenges facing area farmers.
While the organization focuses on a wide spectrum of issues facing growers, at this meeting they addressed three primary concerns, genetic changes in seeds, factory farms and ethanol.
GMO seeds
Phil Bresler, president of the Wood County group, is very concerned about the recent study showing that genetically modified organisms create potential health hazards to humans.
The GMOs are largely controlled by major corporations such as Monsanto.

Outfitted in his signature 50/50 apron and an orange BGSU sweatshirt and ball cap, Wil Hesselbart calls out to those headed to the men's basketball game at the Stroh Center that "You can't win without a ticket."
It's his signature line - and apparently a line that works well.
Most would agree, raising $136,000 for the Falcon Club, a fundraising arm for BGSU Athletics, isn't too shabby.
The 86-year-old has been selling 50/50 raffle tickets for the Falcon Club for 16 years.
"I just keep going. I hit 80 years old and I felt good so I told myself I am just going to keep selling," said Hesselbart during his pre-game ticket sale before a recent BGSU men's basketball game.

PERRYSBURG - School board seats continue to be a hot commodity, as five people have sought a vacancy to be decided this month.
Seeking a spot on the board are Valerie Hovland, Jason Decker, Eric Benington, William J. Davis III and Ken Widdel.
Hovland is an outgoing member of the board who wishes to stay on after not winning re-election in November. Decker was one of five challengers for three school board positions in that election. Gretchen Downs was retained, earning the most votes of any candidate.
The opening was created when Barry Van Hoozen won a seat on city council in the November election and resigned his school board post Dec. 24. Incoming school board members Cal Smith and Sue Larimer will be among those to choose Van Hoozen's successor after being elected to replace Hovland and Mark Schoenlein.
Hovland was the highest vote-getter to not win a seat in the election, garnering 2,110 votes, compared to Larimer, 2,347 votes, and Smith, 2,254 votes. Decker tallied 1,621 votes.
Van Hoozen's unexpired term runs through the end of 2015.
