Fairbanks, Alaska Photo Album
All those electric cords aren't for charging electric vehicles, they're for keeping the engines warm enough that they'll start when it gets very cold. Depending on the owner's preference, a vehicle may just have a block heater that warms the water, or that plus an electric blanket around the battery, and/or electric blankets on the oil pan and transmission. Some people warm their vehicle interiors as well, but that gets very expensive.
