Maybe this has happened to you during the winter. You're driving down the road and you notice your car shaking. There may be an easy explanation for this....snow in your wheels. Auto mechanics like Fred Kaufman at LT Auto in Wichita say snow in your tires is pretty common after a bad winter storm. Snow can get packed in the wheels while you drive.

After Tuesday's propane fire near Rose Hill, many people wondered if the record breaking 111 degree heat was a factor in the explosion, but propane experts say the gas doesn't become flammable until it reaches close to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. “The flammability level for propane is right around 920 degrees,” said Mike Tanner, the General Manager at Wayman Oil Company. “ For propane to ignite or for there to be a fire, it's like anything else. You've got to have an ignition source and you've got to have oxygen.” Tanner says people should avoid smoking close to propane tanks and if they smell a leak, turn off the gas supply vauve and call a professional or 911 fro help.
