Wifey B: People use too much salt. Way too much sodium on processed foods and too much salt in many diets. Still, why would you salt your cars?

Ok, in NC we had salt on our cars a couple of times here and there. I'm glad there are courageous souls living in the cold or we'd be out of space in Paradise.

I think cold is much easier to deal with if that's what you're use to. Your body and you adapt. We even find NC much more difficult after living in South Florida for 5 years. It never really bothered us before but now when we plan a trip there we look ahead at the weather. It's going down to 26 in Charlotte tonight. Please, please, please warm up in the next 10 days.

U have to drive indoors just to wash the salt off the cars. If I try to use the hose at home, it would try to bend, then break. If it didn't break, then the water would freeze before it hits the nozzle, which you cant touch, since your hand might stick to it. Nothing is easy here...

today's high is 26. Headed to 12 at sunset. I'm afraid if I do force water thru the hose, the car will ice over and we can't open the doors. So, yeah, folks here only wash indoors.

We have to clean things up, because winter is just around the corner.

Wifey B: Where indoors do you wash it though? In your garage?

Wifey B: Nearest I've seen is Automatic washes. I googled and found them, but never saw one in NC or here. I found one online and really cool.

Lots of cool stuff up here I learned about.
polar vortex, wintry mix, strap on ice cleats, $2000 propane fills, 4wd mini coopers, and base layer 4.0.
5 years ago, never heard of any of it.
