Ice on my car...


We've had some pretty nippy nights here over the last few weeks, sometimes the temperature has gone down to 0 deg celsius. We don't get snow here but when my car is parked out on the road it does sometimes receive a coating of ice. The morning I took this photo I had to take my 2 teens to the bus stop at 7.30am and it took me a took 5 minutes of pouring cold water on the windscreen to melt the ice.

We are continuing to pack here and there's been quite a bit of decluttering going on. The other half was cleaning out a cupboard area under our stairs that's been used as a sort of "can't find a home for whatever is in there" storage place and he advertised a few items on a local facebook page - a couple of people came by and took most of it and an unused bed frame was taken to work by him then picked up by a colleague.

This morning I made some chocolate cupcakes to take into work tomorrow as it's my 2nd to last day there, half of them had quite a bit of whiskey added and the other half had rum added so they are a little bit boozy to put it mildly - I think they'll be enjoyed greatly.

Linking up with Our World Tuesday.

    1. That's right, although when I lived in Mangawhai we had some very very cold mornings so cold it would almost go right through you, probably because we were near the beach though.

    1. It's pretty similar to here temperature-wise but the cold is a bit more damp there, here it's more dry.

  4. Like you I rarely have ice on my windscreen on Lewis but on the other hand temperatures over 26℃ are equally rare.

  5. It's hard for me to get the concept of cold weather when it's so darn hot here.

    1. I don't envy you, can't stand Summer, Autumn is my favourite season - not too hot not too cold.

  7. Some people here throw hot water on their icy windscreen. That's a good way to crack it. Those cupcakes sound good. :)
