Right, and quite a few "keyboard mechanics" have argued wind chill only applies to living flesh. Park your truck on a 10° day in the sun with no wind and the cab will be way warmer than the same temp on a windy day. Even with a dark color the cold wind sucks the heat right out of the sheet metal.
A good rule to live by:
Never argue with a man from Wyoming about wind !

Well said my friend.
