Northern people, those of you accustomed to ice and snow, don’t forget your family and friends in subtropical climes.
On the rare occasion we experience cold weather – freezing temperatures, ice, sleet, hail, a dusting of snow – we are rendered helpless. Rime on the windows is enough to halt all activities. If it weren’t for this pandemic, white-crusted car windows could justifiably mean calling out of work.
There are no ice scrapers to be found in local stores… none, anywhere. Unless we’re fortunate enough to get proper equipment sent to us by concerned loved ones, we must resort to food scrapers or spatulas to clear windshields. Who knows where we put the winter gloves.
Check in with your warm weather people, we are struggling.
