Mine was beginning to look like Merlins with all that road salt on it. Couldn't stand it any longer and finally washed it yesterday. Testing my new camera I got a couple of days ago. Outside temp was only 7 degs.

Right now the temperature here is -6 degrees without the wind chill and -17 with the wind chill. If u tried to wash a dirty car in this cold, once u got your car out of the car wash, it would immediately freeze. I tried to wash it like 2 days ago and the temperature was ont about 10 degrees and I vacummed my car after I washed it and by the time I was done the excess water on my car was frozen and I couldn't feel my fingers, u want cold, try living here all your life. We had one month last winter where the temperature didn't get out of the single numbers for a whole month. And sometimes it didn't get out of the -0 digits, its too damn cold up here, but I love it, it makes a person stronger to live in this climate. And I love snow, I have an Arctic Cat Jag Deluxe with a 440 for snowmobiling, my friend has an arctic cat ZR900 which is the fastest production snowmobile out there, I think it punches out 150hp and that is a lot for a snowmobile. I believe the wind chill at one point this morning was 23 below. U can't go outside for more then a couple minutes unless your gonna be in someplace warm or you'll freeze.

Gee that'* bad, time for some muflaps there Merlin!I'm not in a handicapped spot, they moved lines around for less handicapped in that area, and more normal spots. that sign is just inside a handicapped stall, so they kept it. All the ones they changes say MSU green parking only.

Yea I was going to put mudflaps on... maybe next year.... the steelies are on now, and I don't feel like taking them off only to put mudflaps on.

However I do remember you saying they were the best thing for keeping the snow/salt/slush off your car... so I'll have to try it next winter.

You're right Sol.... I'd better wash her tomorrow.....
I touched the salt tonight (on the SSEi badge...) ... it'* on there THICK!
We need some rain to clean the roads off... they are so white around here (esp on the highway) that you can't see the white or yellow lines in some places.
