Question for those of you who are used to snow
Published 15/01/2010 @ 21:30:47, By Ddey65


This is not good. It's rather very stupid. :kiki:


And I know a kid who did that, so I gave him my ice scraper. What I didn't realize at the time was that it was the only one I had. So on my next trip up north I bought one for myself, and later bought two for my parents.

These are just one of the tales I can tell about Florida kids who never saw snow before, and New Yorkers who had no idea that anyone in Florida could ever have the need for any winter-related items.

One thing is getting popular in the last years as ice scraper: just take a CD-cover :wink:
O.k., this doesn't work, if you only have illegal made CD's from Thailand or so, with their plastic-bag-covers.


I've meant with "stupid" the fact, that ice cold glass-screens don't like to be "blitz-warmed" with hot water. Totally easy to burst them with that...


Something elst works, too, if it's not too cold: throw salt on the windows.

I was out driving on a lake today, I hope to get some ice tires for the weekend so I can drive "for real", the regular winter tires don't have enough grip on bare ice.

This is what it looked like last week outside my garage:

I'm missing something - Neptune's comment, that today his Expedition is the only car, which is able to be used:

:grin:

CougarTim has writen something in the database, so it seems, that he has electricity.


Sorry, it's nasty from me, as I can boast, that here, in my area, fortunately the snow is melted away for 99%. Just a bit dirt is left over in the shadowed edges.
We can be very happy here, in the far West. Just 100km away, in the hill-areas and further to the East, it's still cold and snowy.
Last Wednesday a few hundred people had to sleep overnight on the Autobahn 45, which was blocked by trucks - at the same time, where 40-50 km away it was nearly all melted away.

Now in whole Northern and Estern Germany the salt is gone. Nothing is left, so the winter-maintenance is stopped. Very funny.
I canot say, how happy I am, that at first in our area the winter is gone for now and at second, I can stay at home for work.


Interesting, in East Germany there is still Soviet technology in use:

P.S. This is DDR-tech, or? http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/fotostrecke-51376-15.html

No, it isn't, as I was told. It's from Sweden: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandvagn_206
