Extreme cold wx starting...
I partially agree with 'bigcountrysg'.. we've been experiencing -20 to -30 around here for the last week. (actually this winter has been in the minus most of the time)!
My plug in is on a timer, starts at 8pm and ends around 7am. I still let it run for a good 15 or better b4 driving off. Sometimes as long as 20-25 min. If placed in Park it automatically goes into a fast idle shortly after starting it. I get the 'exhaust whistle' for about 10 of those warming up minutes. Was using a synthetic delo 5-40 but have gone back to the dino 5-10 motorcraft. Notice no diff in engine noise after starting in extreme cold.
