Living with an electric car in Wisconsin: Winter 2020 Update

As I mentioned back in May, I bought a new electric car this year.  As the weather began to turn cold, I noticed the effective range go down.  It is generally ok, though because everything that I would really need to drive to is within 20 miles of my house.  I did find myself needing to be strategic while driving up to Port Washington, though.  I ran the heater while still plugged in and then shut it off before unplugging and driving off.  That seemed to work.

The winter months were my biggest worry when I bought this thing.  I’m glad that it seems to be working out, so far.
