Mommy deiced our car yesterday and I just have to bark about it. We have never seen so much ice before. The whole car was completely coated with about 3/4 to 1 inch of ice. Mommy looked at it and shook her head. She figured the secret was to get inside and warm the car up. Out she went with the hot blowy hair dryer and worked on the drivers door. The driveway cleaning guy was around and showed Mommy how you bang on the ice. Eventually she got the driver's door open. She then started the car and put the heat on high. It took 2.5 hours of running the car before she got all the ice off and all the doors to open. While the car was running Mommy was using the hair dryer and doing the banging thing on the ice. At the end she got big slabs of ice off. She lifed a 3 ft X 2.5 ft slab of ice off the roof (3/4 inch thick). She worked and worked and worked. OMD, was she ever tired last night!
Mommy said this has convinced her that next spring she has to build a storage shed in the backyard. We have a one car attached garage but we can't get the car in there because of the things being stored in there (gardening tools, snow blower, lawn mower, lawn furniture etc). She said next winter our car will be in the garage. You may remember we didn't move into this house until November so it was too late to build storage sheds. I can see lots of barking in my future with this storage shed building project. Fun, fun, fun!!!!!

OMD that is amazing...2.5 hours wow!
We get a lot of ice here, not so much snow but we have never seen a car that iced in!!
This was a major ice storm. It started raining around 1 pm on Friday and didn't stop until Sunday morning. With the weight of the ice trees split and power lines came down. Some people are still without power. We have never experienced such an event before. We are used to lots of snow and much colder weather.
We had a pretty good ice storm earlier this month... a lot of people had tree damage and a good number lost power...
Pretty but dangerous, ice is.....
OMD we just can't imagine anything like that !
Crikey Jelly ... and I wanted to have a white Christmas. I don't think I'll ever ask for that again. You are really having a BAD time of it with all that ice and snow. My Mum can't even begin to think of what you are going through while we are having a good time at the beach. Madness!!!!! she says. It's all very interesting for us to hear about it first hand though. Be safe and warm, aye???
