    I hate this because:
    • It was cold
    • My hands got colder than they were
    • Having to drive with limited vision (danger!)
    • Made me 6 minutes late for work (not all bad!)

    you know i never knew that this could happen until i visited the uk in winter and saw streets full of cars covered in really thick ice.
    how do you get it off? kettle? :confused: and wouldnt you have to leave the car running for 10 mins to warm it up before you used it?

    Yeah I had to warm the car up for like 5 mins before I used it. Luckily I had a can of deicer which makes getting rid of the ice a lot easier! :)

    If the deicer runs out I use a scraper, that sucks. Need to dig out my gloves.

    Snow in the UK in November...

    The weather is cold in Poland but no snow (yet).

    I'm going to Brazil next week for spring kiteboarding. Hooray!

    The more into winter we get, the longer my car stutters before it starts up... I give it 5 weeks until it will refuse to start at all :(

    Oh and don't boil a kettle to get rid of ice on the windscreen :D lukewarm water and a scraper will do,
