Car wash turned into ice cave amid bomb cyclone cold blast
Is this where people wash their ice-calades?
A Texas car wash became an ice cave as temperatures plummeted amid the historic bomb cyclone sweeping the US. Footage of the icicle-encrusted cleaning station is currently blowing up on Instagram.
“Went hunting for icicles all morning and @heb had the best ones!!” wrote Matt Guthrie in the caption to the clip of the vehicular ice-capade, which was filmed in Lakeway, Austin on December 24, when the mercury dropped to a bone-chilling 10-12 degrees, Jam Press reported.
The eerie footage shows the entrance to the HEB car wash, which is completed overgrown with crystalline stalagmites like the Wampa’s ice cave from “Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.” Or perhaps a car wash that overcharged Elsa from “Frozen” for protective wax.
Meanwhile, part of the sign appears to have fallen and shattered on the frozen ground.
Go figure: the frozen Subaru shower station elicited amazed reactions from Instagram viewers with one writing: “Oh wow – RIP car wash!”
“Oof. I guess it’s hard to leave the water dripping at these places,” said another.
The inadvertent ice festival comes amid a nationwide bomb cyclone, which caused subzero temperatures, blinding blizzards and high winds over the Christmas weekend.
Among the hardest hit regions was Western New York, which saw at least 33 people perish in a winter storm dubbed by Gov. Kathy Hochul as “the blizzard of the century.”
The unprecedented storm blanketed the region in 43 inches of cumulative snow as of 7 a.m. Sunday and also caused Niagara Falls to partially freeze over.
