    Am surprised at the lack of progress on all the new Michigan Superchargers. Many were nearly built out in mid-November but have shown no progress since then.

    looks pretty much like the status of the Big Rapids SC which needs a meter. Stopped by there on last Thursday.

    I used it last night and was able to get 110 KW but it took about 15 minutes before it ramped up. My battery was also cold.

    Yes, forgot that one. They are very nice there at Stafford's. Stafford was on my board of directors at one time too.

    For alternatives, there are HPWC's at Boyne Mountain and Boyne Highlands resorts as well as at the Inn at Bay Harbor in Petosky that may be useful.

    Winter tire recommendations

    I have had very good luck using the Nokia Hakka R2's on my Prius and Chevy Volt and just purchased a set for my new Tesla S. On my previous Tesla I had good luck with the Pirelli tires offered by Tesla but the winters were not very snowy. Am hoping for more snow this year and plan to be ready.

    Supercharger - Muskegon MI

    You make an important point that people often miss. Many non-EV owners do not understand that it is a different way to operate a vehicle. It requires a mind shift but it is also easy to adapt. Charge while you are working, sleeping or shopping for groceries (hats off to Meijer corp!) ...or...

    Supercharger - Big Rapids, MI

    Yes I stopped there today and spoke with the contractor. Big Rapids is under construction with conduits in place and some of the equipment there in crates. He said 4 to 5 weeks and it should be ready for inspection. This contractor is also building one in Muskegon.

    Thinking of moving back to Michigan from San Diego, questions about tesla service there

    I live in the Traverse City area and the service has not been a problem. Ranger service is excellent as is the transport to Cleveland when needed. I have used most of the Superchargers around the state and have never once had to wait. Tesla currently has 10 here now and others are...

    Supercharger - Lansing, MI

    I doubt it will be ready by next week. It may take a couple of weeks to commission the charger once it is built. There is a HPWC on the second floor of the parking deck next to the Hyatt hotel that is capable of providing up to 55Miles of range per charging hour. I often stop there and...
