Exactly what I was thinking.
BC at typical winter starting temps a 20 grade is tens of cSt thinner than a 30 regardless of 0W or 5W
Me, I worry more about fully warmed up viscosity, or I used to when I had 25 or 35 mile one-way, rush hour commutes.
I don't go out if its 10 below 0F or more. I've lost a few alternator bearings and one water pump doing so - on relatively new cars.
More things are lubed than the engine. Idler pulleys, wheel bearings, cv joints and differential too

A reminder fella's. There will still be an oil film left on the parts after shutdown and within that oil film are additives to prevent wear and to reduce friction.

It's not like the films will magically disappear and the DI package will evaporate.
