Temperature at departure = 19° F (-7° C)

SOme reasons why: There's no need to scrape ice off of the windshield, there's no need to warm up the car, walking into the office "under" dressed while eating an ice cream sandwich is fun, ... I'm sure there are others.

Don't freeze waiting for the heater to kick in.
(Oh! I remember now! There's a list in Adventure Cycling.)
You get to keep your heat lower because you acclimate to lower temperatures.
