    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Hallj2 wanted to show her friend in Wales just how cold it was in Ottawa, Canada. So in the morning of January 11 she climbed into her car and lowered the window on the driver's side to reveal a sheet of ice 2 millimeters thick covering the space where the window once was. She was able to break the ice with her hand. 'It's a quick way to clean the ice off your car. It beats scraping,' she said. She says this ice formation happens every time there is freezing rain in her area during the winter season. 'People think this is the effect of such cold weather, but it actually happens when our weather warms up to the freezing mark,' she added.
