My car, the ice cube
Late yesterday afternoon, I ventured across the slick, ice-encrusted street to see if I could open my car doors. The answer...NO. I had brushed the snow off the car the night before, but it was now covered by 1/2 inch of ice. I was able to unlock the door...that's good, the lock wasn't frozen...but the door was immovable. Now the problem...do I pour warm water around the door frame so I can get it open? Do I just give up and walk the 6 blocks to work on icy, unshoveled sidewalks (or walk in the street)? Hmmm. Sure wish we'd be closed again today. The temperature is 16 with a windchill of 7. This one's going to take a little thought.
