(Posted on another blog site on Jan 26th)
Last week was very adventurous on the weather front. We had snow, ice, heavy rains... it was really very cold (atleast for dallas, or atleast for me). We were experiencing 13F (-7C). This is the first time i m seeing icy showers. Since the temperature is very low, the water falling from sky becomes ice in the ground or wherever it falls.
I went out in the morning, and it was freaking cold. Never have i experienced such cold. The worst part is not the cold, but my car was covered by ice like someone poured molten wax over the whole car. I didnt know what to do so i stood there to observe what others were doing. My luck, (as usual) no one was there in sight. (no one is crazy enough like me to stand in that chilly winds and rains). I tried to cut a small hole in the ice for the key hole and successfully inserted the key. But the key wont turn. I coaxed, cajoled and somehow opened the lock. And thats the most i could do. The ice is so strong that i could not open the door.
So i did a genious stuff, got a bucket of hot water and poured over the car. Cool, ice melted and i could get inside the car. Phew.. Most of the ice stayed on the car for 3 days.. It was cool!!!
Now ther is no ice or snow.. :( i certainly miss them both
