A WOMAN has shared a shocking clip of what happened to her car while she was living in it one winter – and it has TikTokers in a frenzy.
The video starts by showing with Nikki Delventhal hunkered down in her make shift home and saying “it’s so cold”.
It then pans around to reveal the extent of the freezing weather.
The temperature was so chilly that even the inside of the car was frozen, and sparkling icicles can be seen covering the interior windows.
Fortunately it seems Nikki was able to see the funny side of the situation as her name could be seen etched into the frost.
She also seemed in good spirits despite her predicament: “I got some good blankets I feel good,” she says.

The clip – that is captioned “That’s bananas! Windows were cracked, condensation wins again! LOL,” – has racked up more than 100 likes.
Some viewers were concerned for Nikki’s welfare, with one commenting: “My son lives in his car in Denver. I always worry about him freezing. Please stay safe.”
“Damn, be safe friend,” wrote another.
But some found the situation amusing, “I’m guessing you didn’t watch the weather or someone lied to you! Lol,” they joked.
A fourth offered advice and said: “Make your window blinds more insulated, windows are the least insulated part of the car so they steam up and freeze too easily.”
Nikki wasn’t the only person living in their car to struggle with the cold temperatures.
Earlier this month we told how an experienced traveller who sleeps in the back seat of his car all year round claims there’s no trick for staying warm in the winter.
The vehicle owner insisted that layering up and hoping for the best is the only thing they do when the temperatures drop.
