Frost in November

MrsM enjoys scraping the ice off the car in the morning.
She finds it quite soothing.

MrsM thinks that this is probably
not a socially acceptable admission
so she decides to keep it as a guilty secret.

  1. You probably have a proper ice-scraper, and not a small plastic Ikea bowl you found after a rummage round in the boot.

  6. I am in awe of your patience.

    (My Jeep is too tall, ice down my sleeve, scraper impossibly dull?!)

  7. How do you keep the bits from going down your sleeve, or from falling onto the front seat when you open the door?

    I've lived in a snowy climate all my life, and have yet to master either.

  8. Sorry. No ice. Or snow here.
    But I have plenty of guilty secrets.
    Believe ME.

  9. I like the noise, so I guess it's my guilty secret too!

  10. What is even nicer is to lie in bed, happily retired from work, and listen to all those neighbours scraping away...... Is this also a bad thing to admit?

  11. I don't mind doing it either, but, like Blackbird, I can't really reach which is frustrating as I get left with an unscrapped bit in the centre!

  12. I've lost my scraper. It's somewhere in the pit we loosely term 'the garage'. The irony of this is that of course if there was less junk in the garage, we could fit the car in it and wouldn't need a scraper at all.

  13. I like it as long as I remember to shut the driver's door. Last time I left it ajar so I could listen to Radio 4 whilst scraping, and ended up with a seat full of rapidly defrosting ice.

    I blame John Humphreys.

  16. I think you must be scraping courteous British ice--not the kind you have to use the edge of the scraper to hack away at before scraping can commence.
