My dilemma was whether to walk 10 minutes or drive two minutes to the clinic.
If I walked, I'd have to bundle up because it was cold (-10C/14F ... -18C/-0.4F with the windchill).
If I drove, I'd have to scrape our car, which hadn't been used since the ice storm on the weekend.
I figured the car would have to be done eventually and I had time so I de-iced the car.
I turned everything on high and waited ... there was over an inch of ice on the windshield and back window. It took over 30 minutes of heat and me scraping to get the windows clear (good thing we had lots of gas!).
I'm not complaining. Yes, we have a car that needed to be de-iced. But there are still about 200,000 Torontonians who have it worse ... they haven't had electricity since Saturday because of the ice storm and there is no end in sight for them :(
