Ice, Ice Baby: Pickup Truck Covered in Ice

Frozen pickup

Yep. This winter has just sucked. 

This winter has not been easy on our rides. Sure, some have found a silver lining and taken their trucks to the ice for some sweet drifts and clever maneuvering. Many of us face endless shoveling, scraping ice and snow off the truck, and cold starts. And just when we think it has reached peak levels of frustration, we come across this: A pickup completely encased in ice.

The truck was spotted in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Adam Hatfield and Melissa Reese saw this frozen truck and sent the pictures to FOX6 News.

We’re not sure how the owner will get out of this, um, slippery situation.

Another winter warrior, Lisa Klein, posted a picture of the truck on Facebook, saying “Dear Mother Nature, this poor, poor truck is stuck on a La Crosse street and needs warm temperatures and sunshine. Can you help?”

Mother Nature could not be reached for comment.

The only upside we can find is that it looks really badass. And, it would be pretty impossible to give the ice beast a ticket.

Aside from the benefit of a garage, have you got any tips for how you keep your truck safe from the elements in the winter?
