    So it was a bitter and icy day. Vicky had to go to work and there was an inch of ice on her windshield.

    Daniel watched from across the street as she picked up a rock and started chipping away at the ice on her windshield!!

    Daniel was around 14 and so he went to help... "Vicky, what are you doing?" he askes.

    She says that she is getting the ice off her windshield!

    Daniel quickly suggests for her to pour some cold water on it to melt the ice.

    Vicky quickly replys "No I heard pouring water on it will make it break" while holding the rock she has been chipping away with .

    She is not the sharpest tool in the shed but is an interesting neighbor to say the least!!! and notice he said cold water not hot which could cause it to crack because of the quick temp change lol. Vicky is so funny.

    That is so funny, she reminds me of my sister in law,,, she used a shovel to whack ice on her windshield right after she and my brother got married.

    oh my!

    See the weather man kinda hinted that there might be snow and ice so I I bought an extra can of de-icer ahead of time (and didn't need it YET, but you know, always be prepared)

    Alternately in the past I have put an old dog-blanket over my windshield and held it in place with a brick on top of the truck....remove blanket and there's no snow or ice underneath! Some people use cardboard or even towels for the same trick.

    When I lived in Milwaukee if you had to park on the street in the winter, you had to know which side of the street you could park on, on which day. (So the snow plows could get through)

    MWF you could park on the West and North sides of streets, T,Th,S... East and South sides of the street.

    So one day my landlord says to his wife... everyday you change the car from one side of the road to the other... why don't you just keep it in the garage....

    I had no idea there was even space in there for it. Sure enough there was...
