it's cooooold!

It's very cold out - 26 or so now, and the radio says that it feels like 9. 9!! Yikes. NI was closed until 10 AM this morning (so was UT) and when I got down to my car, I had to spend 40 minutes de-icing it (with djedi - thanks a lot!). Although part of that was not realizing that if the engine isn't on, the heat will blow air, but it won't really be hot. Oh well.

It was neat - there was a layer of ice over all of my car - windshields, windows, top, everything. I couldn't roll my window down because of the ice. But eventually the heat and front and rear defrosters did the job.

It was a bit creepy to see cars on Mopac, but going 20 MPH lower than the speed limit. Didn't see any accidents, either, which is good. Now I'm warming up with a nice cup of tea.

So, do you people in the north (or north of here - Carrie said it was 3 degrees in St. Louis yesterday!) have to drip your pipes every night for like months? Or are the pipes better insulated up there or something?
