or the engine is revving the heat comes in fine. if, however, i stop at
a light -no matter how high the blower fan is on there is nothing but
unheated air coming forth. am i crazy or do i have a problem? thanks.

You may have a partial blockage flushing may help. But you will get
hotter air as the motor runs higher rpm

Check the level of antifreeze. Low volume could do this.

Or the water pump is on it's way out. If it is warm with the engine running
at speed, but cold at idle, the water pump may not be circulating properly.
Maybe.

Then again I have had this happen just because it is SO DAMN COLD!!!

(sitting in the office at 63 because it's 10 outside...)

10 degree F. is pretty warm if your Canadian like I am. Heck it has
been -15 F for the last few days or -30 degree C. and colder.

I tossed a digital thermometer in my FREEZER. -1F. So from a thin blooded
southern Californian ... you have all that Canadian socialized medicine and
clean cold living. I'll sit here by the pool, under a palm tree, sipping an
iced tea, in my swim trunks. LOL
