How Icy is YoWindow?

Post by countryroads » Fri Feb 04, 2011 2:26 am

Hi Friends,

The USA has just had a Monster of a Winter storm. Chicago is buried in snow and Ohio got an ICE storm.

I thought I might share some pictures from my trying to get ICE off of my truck today. :evil:

You should have seen the ice all over my truck. Once I had gotten the ice off of the hood of my truck, I started to take pictures. :oops:

Once I was able to start removing the ice, the only thing you could do was throw it somewhere.

Now to take a break before finishing the ice removal.

I won with the ice removal but at a small cost. I have a few scratches in the paint on the hood of my truck. :evil:

No one else can notice them, but I know they are there. So I need to fix that this summer.

Hi Friends,

Rascal is having a rough time with the ice.

We had plenty of snow before the ICE storm. There is about 3 inches of ICE on top of the snow that was on the ground. Before the storm was over, we then got a few inches of snow on top of the ice. So Rascal is taking it easy as he walks around his yard. :?

I took one more picture of the ice that I had removed from my truck.

All I can say is HURRY UP SPRING!!

And i thought removing a 5mm (0,01 inch) layer of ice from my cars windshield was hard (not today but some years ago) - but you definitely has won.

I agree: spring has to come faster!
