I had to add air in the tires of my car, so the TPMS system wouldn't trip.
You generally loose around 1psi of air,, for every 10.*f ''or so'' you drop.

That's a nice 88⁰F. I usually don't mind those days. I prefer about 75⁰F to 80⁰F for ease of comfort.

Well I finally have a respectably cold number to share! Woke up this morning to a 17 degrees Fahrenheit day! Accuweather says it feels like 1 F.
Also, we got the unbelievable- Texas snow!

Hope you guys done in Texas are staying safe and trying to keep warm. Cold temperatures like these can freeze water pipes if your heat goes out. Run a sink to keep water flowing,flowing water does not freeze...easily.

Yeah we're taking precautions, we're more prepared than a lot of Texans though.

I did go out and have some fun in the snow though! I'd always wanted to drive one of my karts in the snow so that's what I did! Even though the Hothead carburetor doesn't do well on left turns, it's great for going straight! And it even started FIRST PULL three times in a row at around 18 degrees Fahrenheit!
Stay warm and safe y'all, it's supposed to actually go NEGATIVE tonight here in Texas, it's gonna break all the records!

Until then you can enjoy staying inside with the video I just made! This thing left some SERIOUSLY long rubber marks!
