That'* crazy.

True story: I was at my rental house 2 hours ago and the tenant had the air conditioning running. 7:00 at night, and he'* running the a/c...granted it WAS 65.

Ok, so they weren't kidding, we got SNOW...5 inches here in Weyauwega. The roads SUCK, keeping a huge car on the road with no snow tires and no electronic control systems...is kind of a chore...or so i realized when I was going 75 and hit a big patch of slush...talk about sliding off the road! I drove a total of 200 miles today in the snow. That was fun, but it wore me OUT!

I am uploading the pics I took today...I will post again with them soon.
