It's normal to get some white smoke on a cold start in cooler weather.
Living in Winnipeg, I get white smoke on first start up most of the time. I don't notice it as much in summer as it's only a short puff on a cooler morning. In spring & fall I plug the van in just to keep it warmed up and ready to go.
