This is why your tires lose air pressure when it gets cold

Q: Something very annoying is happening to my cars that are parked outside in the cold. (It doesn’t seem to affect those in the garage). When I start the car, the “low tire pressure” warning light comes on. To fix the problem, I have to put a few psi of air into the offending tires. So, where did all that air suddenly go overnight? When it warms up, will I now have too much air? What about the tire stores, which offer to put nitrogen into my tires for a hefty fee? I purchased a 1-year-old vehicle with the green valve stem caps, which I think signify “nitrogen only.” What if I add regular air?

UPS delivery drivers are supposed to ring your doorbell when they leave a package

Q: I ordered some items online on Thanksgiving. They came UPS. I know these poor workers are overloaded at Christmastime, but we received the package at 9:30 the other night. If I had not heard the truck, the package would have sat on our front steps all night for anyone to steal. The driver was very quiet in bringing it to the door and did not ring the doorbell. Our mailman always rings the bell with a package. Why does UPS not ring the bell anymore?
