If you've been outside in the past few days you've probably noticed that it's a bit cold. It's also windy and snowy too, which comes with its own set of problems.
Basically (just like every year) at the first sign of any snow whatsoever the country has had to shut down completely - schools, trains, buses, you name it.
Well, if you've spent any time at all in the last few days trying to get somewhere with no luck - and that's a good possibility - then spare a thought for the owner of this car.
This car was parked in Tower Hamlets during the recent cold snap, and it looks like it must have become covered in water, which has then frozen over.
The frozen car-sicle is now completely encased in ice by the side of the road; it's eerily beautiful to be honest with you.
It's not clear how exactly it came to be like this, although a pretty solid guess would be that a pipe has burst somewhere near the car as another result of the cold weather.
The Tower Hamlets branch of London's Metropolitan Police Service tweeted a picture of the car with a note of sympathy for the hapless car owner.

Now, call me an old cynic, but there might just be a barely detectable amount of glee hidden in that message.
Anyway, whether or not they're just being cruel, it's not going to help the poor soul who is going to have to dig their car out of that situation.
With temperatures not expected to get back above freezing for a good few days yet it could be some time before the car is back on the road. There probably isn't enough de-icer spray in the whole of London to sort that mess out.
At least the driver isn't inside the car - that would be a real emergency. Lots of people have spent the night in their car on various motorways over the past few days though.
The Army have been arriving at certain locations to help get people out of their cars when they have been trapped on roads across the country.
The M62 Motorway closed completely over the Pennines last night as well, leaving hundreds either stranded in their vehicles overnight. The road will stay closed indefinitely according to the police.
