Andy's Angles: The View
There was an ice storm in my neighborhood Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. I heard the sleet and ice pellets pinging off my window, so I suspected my early morning gym visit would be cancelled. A peek out the window, and a look at my car confirmed that. The car was covered in ice, and the road was a shiny and slick skating rink.
I did stay up all night long, listening to the police radio, getting information on the internet. It was an interesting time, and one of those mixed feeling events. It was a relief to avoid traveling on icy roads, but I did miss on a big story-- that major crash on Interstate 81 in the Clarks Summit area.
This is what I found when I ventured out after the sun came up. I tried a scrape. It didn't work. The ice was too heavy. I turned on the car and let the defroster work from the inside. It did the trick after just a few minutes. It loosened up the ice, and it came off in big sheets.
