Frosty Florida Morning
Jack Frost made one of his rare visits to Florida this week.
It's such an unusual thing to have these hard freezes here in Florida, that when I went out to the car this morning and found the windows all frosted over, I had no idea where the ice scraper was, it had been too long since we used it last. A neighbor woman, carrying a gallon jug of water, laughed as she saw me scraping at the windshield, and told me that she would offer me some of her water, but that pouring it on her car windows to defrost them, had only made the problem worse. I showed her what I was using, an expired Target credit card, and told her that was what old credit cards were for.
