Cold weather picts
« on: July 20, 2016, 12:42:01 AM »
Last year, when it was so hot, I asked for some cold weather picts. I'd like to do it again. We've had triple digits temps for a bit & I'd love to see some cold picts.
I'll go first. Here are picts from our only snow last year. LOL It was in Dec. No more snow after that.

My faithful Rose loved to play in the snow. She lived to be almost 14 years old.
To me quilts are like a permanent symbol of love from the person that made it for you. 
Long after they are gone, you still have the proof of their love for you at your fingertips.

These last two are Waylon trying to get up in the Apple tree...he is looking for those apples, the last one shows how high the snow was compared to the Dogs height!  We were actually running out of places to put the snow, we got so much that year and the next!

Sure wish pictures of snow would cool me off.  100+ temps here.  And menopause.  I would probably melt any snow I came into contact with. LOL

Oh, for a cool breeze.  It is 96 at 6 PM, and no relief in sight.  I don't like summer, and I'm not crazy about winter!  No fair MamaHC!  It's winter in New Zealand.  I wish I had a "summer" home there!

Yes we are in a bad heat wave as far as Michigan is concerned, up in the 90's and heat index over 100.  No cooler then the 70's at night, and the humidity came with it!  So our air is on (most of the time we do not use the air, we have open windows, which I love), but it looks like the air will be on till about Mon. morning if the weatherman has it right!  Today they are watching storms, that have what they call a bow echo in them....meaning large hail, 60 plus mile per hour winds and possible tornadoes.  We need rain, but we don't need that kind! Quiet right now, but this is for early afternoon.
MammaHC...it sounds like you have the kind of weather I love!  Not to hot and not to cold!  I can take the cold way better then the heat, but I don't like shoveling the white Sh##!

We're hot & humid here, too. DH likes the heat but has trouble breathing when it's humid so we run the AC at 78°F.

I can back Shyleigh up on that!
Some parts of Florida get snow about every 30 years
or so.
Just enough to slow traffic way down, as ppl down
here don't know how to drive on snow and
icy roads.





It is a blessing, to be a blessing!

LOL, been a while since you have been gone, hasn't yet. I remember the days of the snow tires sitting around waiting for the right date to put them on,take them off,(always a stack of tires sitting around) and the studded tires, and chains. But none of that is allowed anymore.  We have what they call all weather tires now.   Don't ask me what the difference is?! LOL

I had four snow tires on my Jeep several years ago and three yrs. ago I had four on my Subaru. I will say, however, that it took the tire place I deal with here a while to locate four that I wanted.

This is interesting....Studded tires are permitted in Michigan, but, there is always a but.....This is what I found.

I finally got to the bottom of studded snow tires in Michigan, My Friend  is always bragging about how great his studded tires are, and I'm always bemoaning that we can't run them in Michigan. I now have more information. I have discovered that studded winter tires *are* legal in Michigan.

Before we all celebrate by buying new winter tires, there is a catch. Michigan allows studded tires during winter months, but only if the tires are certified to meet a certain wear specification. At this point, no manufacturer has supplied the necessary documentation to be certified by the State of Michigan.

So there you have it: It is legal to run studded tires in Michigan, but there are no legal tires.
