February....Burrr!

 Ice, ice, ice!!  Wow. January left and February came in with freezing rain which lasted a couple days. This is a pic of the car windshield from the inside where I am sitting.  It took alot of effort from Elder Tew to get the windows scraped off to the point that we could drive.
 This is the next day on Sunday trying to get to church. Luckily we learned from the previous day to put plastic over the back and front windows the night before and that helped alot.  You can see how thick the ice is from these pics. The entire car was covered with a sheet of ice but here Elder Tew finally has it nearly off.  It stopped raining for a couple hours and a bit of sun came out during this time.
 The people here said they have never seen this happen. Crazy!
 Two days later we took a walk around the Schloss.
 Winter has certainly come here to Graz.


Even the peacocks are hunkering down any place they can.

A) HOW did the ice slide off the car and not break? I guess it must've been that thick. WOW.
B) In PA, the state was shut down for a few days. Ice was 2-3 inches thick. Took a few hours to chisel and chip the windshield. Loverly:)
