    60, sunny, No snow was in forecast for 7 days. The beer I placed at the bottom of my biggest snowbank saw the first light of day since Dec 1 so it was enjoyed.

    Bye bye snow tires, put the shiny 17's back on. Couple tips, Always put WD40 or anti-seize on the face of the drum/disc and on the wheel where it contacts. The Steelies always come off easy. Its the Alloys which always seem to fuse to the steel of the Drum/discs.

    Another tip PUT A HAT ON. Over you ears that is, nothing is worse than when setting the jack under the truck, and having salt/sand particles
    fall into your ear canal.

    Of course it was 25 and snowing this morning. That was NOT in the forecast. Lots of fun on black ice with the all-seasons.

    yeah, the weathers crazy here too. it was high 50's in the day and low 40's at night so i swapped my snow tires off, then 2 weeks later its 15 at night and 38 highs during the day. black ice definately sucks here on the summer tires too demoncleaner.
