Today I got my new OBD/bluetooth adapter. Got my android app torque working. Nothing to it, set it up and it worked. Very happy with it so far.

Got my wife some new tires on the front of the Montana. The tires she had still have a lot of tread, but totally sucked on snow. No traction, may as well have bald tires. My old nearly bald tires did better. The new ones seem better, next snow will say for sure. Want to find another set of 17" wheels so I can get a good set of winter tires and another set of summer tires. I really don't like all season tires.

It was real cold today. I moved the truck back about 15 feet so I could fix my snow thrower. Then moved it back in. didn't have to take my son to school today because the school called and said a water pipe froze and they had a little water in the school.

Yikes, -7 today. Guess I'm starting both trucks up good and early. I don't even want to go outside.
