One easy tip to consider this winter: Don’t park near a lake. This New Yorker parked his car in a lot next to lake Erie and came back the next day to find it completely encased in ice. The extremely cold temperatures and water coming off the lake left to the car zero chance to survive the night. It was so frozen over that a picture of it went viral and people thought he might have to wait until the Spring thaw so he could free it. All it took were some workers, a few chemicals and a tow cable to rip it out.
