As in, my damn car is stuck in ice. The ice is so solid, I could not chunk it out with a shovel. I tried to get the car unstuck long enough that my glove-encased hands lost sensation and were bright red when I got back inside. Yeesh!
It looks like someone dug their car out this morning and dumped all their icy slush directly behind my crapmobile, and the whole mess solidified as the temperatures dropped again this afternoon. Now, I have two feet of ice encasing my back tires and the underside of my car. I have no idea how the hell I'm going to get to work tomorrow.
Moving the car forward isn't an option unless the unknown bonehead who parked directly on my front bumper moves. And that won't be a guarantee of motion, considering the lock on my rear tires. I think I'm really glad I brought the work laptop home with me on Tuesday...
You'd think life would give you a break occasionally.
Have you tried pouring room-temperature water onto the ice? Sometimes that can loosen it up a bit...maybe...
I remember my first encounter with an ice storm, right after I moved to New England. Man, that freezing precip is some nasty stuff. Fortunately it's rare where I live now. I recommend some "deicer" winshield wiper liquid (if they sell it around there) as a help to unfreeze your car. We used to use it in Wisconsin all winter.
Ah, I used to use deicer back in Kentucky too!
