Now that is Cold !

Earlier this week temperatures in Canberra overnight were down to -11.2 .... The soap on this brush stopped and froze once it hit the air
Winter Tip  As it is getting dark earlier monitor what time your carwash site lights come on/go off.  Check your timers regularly 'cause you don't want people washing their cars at your site and the lights go off !
