Default Trailer tires on sale now

This company has a wide selection of trailer tires at very reasonable prices with free shipping.

https://simpletire.com/catalog?width...&query=catalog

I have ordered from them before with excellent results/quick shipping.

No, I do not work for them.... just passing this along so if in need, can save a few $$.

Looks like they are still running some good discount deals and year-end sales. Best time to get a good set of tires. I'll be just finishing the installation of atv snow plow and tires for the bike. Wifey already approved the new set of tires and rims for the truck.

My son adapted a 4' wide snowblower to fit the front of his ATV powered via hydraulics from a separate engine mounted above it. Works like a charm.

One time I attempted to explain what a tank heater on a vehicle was to a fellow in Florida.

A tank heater is a 850 - 2,000 watt water/antifreeze electric heating element enclosed in a small tank that is mounted in the heater hose on a vehicle. It is powered by an electrical cord plugged into a 120V outlet. It's plugged in at night to keep the engine warm so it will start when morning temperatures are well below zero (not uncommon in the upper midwest).

When I explained that, he didn't believe it and he didn't believe anyone could survive in winter temps of -20 + degrees.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0..._rd_i=15725581

Trying to explain a snowblower could also be "unbelievable" to some, however, a picture/video is worth a thousand words.

A beautiful wonder of natural occurrence, similar to the natural occurrence of rain only in a beautiful white form.

A "downy" blanket of sparkling white in the sunshine or moonlight...peaceful to look at but frightening to drive in". Merry Christmas to you and yours !������☃️☃️☃️

Just to show that I'm kiddin' around, here's a picture of our recent rare December snow. It was about 4 inches! You can see our little FF backed up in front of the garage and hidin' behind some of our vans.

ADP .... that is more than here where the ground is brown and bare.

However, there is a possibility of snow in the forecast for tomorrow and Friday which, of course, may or may not happen.

Your in a heat wave.

0 degrees here...and got a light dusting of snow so the ground is 'just barely' white.

No bugs either.

True, we did warm up to 65, and we are mostly bug free year round.

Here in Kalamazoo MI we are at 8 inches of snow and 12 F. Tomorrow we head to Florida to close on a house. Try to finish the deal before the end of the year.

15 below zero this morning but did warm to about 2 below zero!

Nice and brisk with a slight breeze giving a wind chill of 35 below zero. When it gets a bit colder will have to get out a pair of gloves.

Only 17 below zero this morning and bright sunshine. Wind chill unknown.

As for the brass monkey, it's a colloquial expression, falsely attributed as an old Navy term. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brass_...(colloquialism)
