I had to scrape that 3x off of my car IN ONE DAY. I shoulda taken pictures, but i didn't have time. All day ice storms SUCK. I had atleast 1/2 inch on my car once, i spend 15 minutes and i had to jet to work at that point. Have fun with that will!

The mirrors are the worst with that chit.

My mirrors were the first thing thawed. They're heated.

Bill, I do belive you are sussposed to wipe the wax off the car, not leave it.
And like Mos said, it is sussposed to stay off your windows!
Also have you heard of this new product called "motor oil" assuming you dont know what that is looking at your wax job
LMAO JUST GOOFIN AROUND
Mine looks that only replace the ice with frost, and theres just about the same amount of snow on it!
Traction Control Helps tons!

My traction and ABS have been out for 6 months. Highly over-rated. I get where I need to be just fine.

Raining now here in Northwest Washington, just got back from Bellevue (just east of Seattle) and it was like driving in a Slirppy all the way back.
Need an ice pick do you? It was that way here just a few hours ago.

Raining here, too Ken. I just drove from Corvallis to Albany. Normally drive it pretty fast, but stuck to 40 this time. Asphalt, Ice, Snow, Ice, rain. Bad stack.
