I think the backup camera on my car is pretty sweet. But, I'm old-school and after the newness factor wore off, I rarely check the backup cam and just use my mirrors to see what's going on behind me.

The other day during this ridiculous cold spell, I was backing out of my parking space at the grocery store. Checked the mirrors, all good and hit the gas. I just happened to glance down at the backup camera and saw the image above on my screen and slammed on my brakes. What in the holy hell was I about to back into???

Closer inspection revealed that, no, I was not about to run over a ghost or a weird, glowing, pole shaped thing from outer space. It was just an icicle dangling in front of the camera. Silly me. Stay warm out there. Spring is right around the corner.

Next time,
