It reminded me of a funny story that happened to me while attending the University of Miami.
It was the first time I had ever gone skiing and probably the first time I had seen snow since my early teens with my cousins in Chicago.
The second morning, after arriving at the house we were staying at, it was so cold that the van we rented (in a Hialeah car rental agency, which was more like an auto repair shop but gave us the cheapest rate) would not start.
Here we were, five or six grown college men, mostly upperclassmen, and what brilliant idea did we come up with? We boiled some water and poured over the engine.
Needless to say, we quickly found out, if you pour water in icy cold weather, it turns to ice!
We had to call a local mechanic, who came to bail us out (while holding back chuckles, I'm sure!), and we didn’t hit the ski slopes until early afternoon.
Hey, they don’t call it Suntan U for nothing…
