    Nah, I think it was somewhere else. It was mentioned on a TV programme the other day and was caused by a combination of very rough seas and very cold weather.
    It happened near a coast and waves were hitting the shore sending up sprays of water, then because of the extremely cold temperatures the spray from the sea was freezing as soon as it landed on anything.

    Frozen cars in the USA are usually pictured in Chicago near the lake shore.

    Maybe it was a different one that I saw on that programme then. As long as it doesn't ever happen in london i'm happy!
