It's called a ground frost. Very common in Britain to see the grass and cars covered in frost though the actual air temp is above freezing.

Well that's a strange story but I know checking the inside temp is not always the best thing to do. Reason being is that your inside temp is based off of an inside temperature, not outside lol.
If I remember correctly, scientifically speaking, the weather inside a home is always warmer due to the fact that air flow is lesser, thus causing a "heating" sensation. Most people think that covering yourself in blankets makes you warm because you have a blanket! but not really, it's the lack of oxygen under the blanket that causes you to heat up. That make sense?
Thus, while your thermostate may say 34, it can actually be closer to 20 or lower outside. Plus you have to take into accountability winds that can create an even colder state by amplifiying the freezing of dew and dampness on your car.
