“It was so cold that opticians were giving away ice scrapers with every new pair of eyeglasses”

"It was so cold...the optician was giving away free ice scrapers with every new pair of eyeglasses!” is a one-line saying about extremely cold weather that has been cited in print since at least 2006. The one-liner is frequently included with other “so cold” jokes.
