7.3L smoking

I have a 2000 E-350 with the 7.3L. It's got 179K mile on it. Lately when I crank it up cold I get a large puff of smoke out the tail pipe. Appears to be blue. Anybody know what's up?

Blue is normal just from a cold start up of the diesel, white is just a burn off raw fuel cold

mine does it as well. as above stated, it's the unburned diesel fuel that is cold....Mine does it when it gets below freezing outside, does it even worse if I forget to plug it in!
