New to the Tampa area? Take a deep breath. The line at Wawa today isn’t just for the hoagies. If you’re a transplant like me, the first time you see that exclamation point warning light come on, you might assume you’re about to get hit with a big repair bill.
Relax. It’s just an indicator that your tire pressure is low. Florida’s first big temperature drop brings this annual heart-raising moment. Your PSI drops about 1 or 2 notches every time the temp goes down 10 degrees. And since we started this week at 80 and woke up to the 40s this morning, well there ya go.
Don’t be surprised if you see the tire pressure light on this morning. This was my car. It’s common to see lower tire pressure when it gets cold outside. On average, theres a 1-2 psi drop for every 10 degree drop in temperature. pic.twitter.com/916jke7wYd— Tony Sadiku (@TonySadikuFOX13) December 2, 2020
The line at the Wawa air pumps will be long today, but free is free. And in this COVID-19 life, who’s carrying around dirty quarters anymore? Plus it’s a good excuse to get a hoagie.
