Car alarm

06Dec12

It’s snowing and then raining and then snowing again. I need to allow time to scrape the ice off the car in the morning, but if it is slightly warmer and raining I won’t need to get up that little bit earlier. I don’t want to miss out on five minutes sleep if I don’t have to. This is typical of the sort of dilemma that you face when living in a temperate maritime climate.

There must be an app that will monitor the local weather and then adjust the alarm on my phone accordingly…

    or put your car in the garage overnight. Works for me!

    • Sarah – I have to put Mrs R’s car in the garage overnight… There is a pecking order.

        It’s the same in my house. Hubby has to scrape his windscreen of a morning but due to our northly position it’s pretty much every morning and so he always loses those extra few minutes of sleep!

    Put a tarp tightly over the windscreen, and invest in a bottle of Halfords fantastic squirty de-icer (not the kind in a tin)

    • Adele – you are so practical 🙂
      Once I tried putting something over the windscreen. I didn’t have a tarp, so I used an old bedspread. It rained during the night and then froze. In the morning I had to find somewhere to stand a frozen stiff car-sized bedspread.

  3. option d) just be five minutes late and blame it on the weather ;~)
