Well, it might sound like it. But I'm absolutely certain I read it, even though
I can't find it now in a Google search. The oil made the water run off the wire
like water off a duck's back, before it could freeze.
If we get ice again, and the pre-coating of oil doesn't work, then maybe we can
turn the entire Beverage into a big heating element and melt it off. :-)
