What's a good cold weather cord? This is for my house... so it would have to come from a hardware store. Right now in our garage we have a 14-ga cord in one of [URL='http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00005A1K1"]these[/URL] (which are amazing!) This is for yard work (hedge trimmer, leaf blower, weed whacker,) starting the snow blower, very small air compressor, saw, drill, etc. The cord is due for a replacing as some of the insulation is starting to get torn, but I'm going to look for a cord that won't freeze in cold weather. All of our cords in the garage (which can get to about 20 degrees Fahrenheit) tend to get really stiff and impossible to wind back up after they are done being used. Granted, the only thing we use it for in the winter is starting the snow blower and sometimes running the mini air compressor for tires, but hey... I was even thinking going up to 12 gauge as well. Need 100-125 feet to get around the yard.
