Frost Tonight !

Ok... weather forecast seems to be forecasting widespread frost tonight and early in the morning......
I have just been out and covered the windscreen with a tarpaulin....
and will be making sure I put two hot water bottles, on the dash, 30 mins before departure, tomorrow morning at 9 a.m.  !

I'm huddling my monitor to keep warm.
Shutters profile picture makes that a bit awkward though.

Re: Frost Tonight !

Just taken the tarp off and the windscreen is clear.... put the bottles on the dash to warm the glass, so it does not fog up when we get in and breathe over it....
other windows will be de-iced with a de-icer spray and squeegee...

Minimum today here in sunny Sheffield -1.8 at 7:45 Smiley
I had cause to use the garden hose this morning and it started as a dribble and slowly turned into a good stream as the ice inside melted.

One thing I miss on my present car is a heated front windscreen Sad They were invaluable for a quick getaway.

So that we 'Westerners' aren't left out, very heavy frost here in Cheshire as well. Don't know the temperature as I haven't got an outside thermometer.
