Every winter my window freezes over. If you ignore the annoyance of the inability to see out, it’s actually quite a pleasantly convenient thing to happen. It’s a built-in thermometer. If the window’s frozen, I know it’s at least -20C with the windchill. Right now I looked out, saw it was frozen, and said, Ooh, it’s cold out. Upon checking weather.ca – yup, -27C (-17F). That’s cold.
