Engine Running Due To Temperature

While embarking on my trek to work this morning I was greeted with a message on the dash “Engine Running Due To Temperature” and being the modern man I decided to ignore the handbook in the glove box and google it.  Apparently it is a good thing, of course not for the people counting mpg as though the fate of the world rested on it, but for the well being of the car itself.

A quick search turned up this thread explaining it pretty well.  So did I use some gas today?  Yes.  Did I care?  No.

The car also warned me of the possibility of ice on the roads and that I should be careful driving.  It loves me already.  Warms the cockles of my heart.
