While we’re suffering through extreme heat here in Aus, on the other side of the world America is being hit with extreme cold.

Something you’ll (probably) never experience in Australia is “black ice” where water freezes over the road becoming a. basically invisible and b. extremely slippery.

In St. Louis, Missouri, someone managed to capture video of the scary moment a firetruck hit some ice and slid out of control.

Check out the video below to see the truck crash into a parked car before coming to a stop, narrowly missing smashing into a house.
