Scraping Ice Off the Car Windshield

December 27, 2011

Neighbor, lost in a cloud of exhaust, scrapes his car windows.

This is a winter morning in Seattle.  Many of us who live in the city do not have garages, so we park our vehicles outside overnight.  We have to remember to allow a bit of extra time to scrape the ice from our windshields on these frosty mornings.  I hate to have my car idle and emit exhaust for too long, but the car needs to be on while the windshield defroster does its work.  Here, one of my neighbors is almost lost in a cloud of exhaust as he clears the ice from his vehicle.  It rather reminds me of those old steam engines you see in movies gathering enough pressure to take off down the railroad tracks.
