The ghost-like shell left by the front bumper of a Jeep in ice was pictured in front of a Greenville, North Carolina, medical center, providing a cool example of just how cold it has been in some southern states this week.
Pictures of the ice sculpture in Vidant Medical Center's parking lot were sent to WITN-TV by a couple of its viewers.

The news station reported that one of the photographers thinks the Jeep was running to warm up, which caused some of the ice on its engine to melt just enough to maintain the shape of the vehicle when it backed away.
Temperatures in Greenville have been in the low 20s this week.
