Winter Be Gone!

Today was proof that the groundhog may have gotten it right.  Frosted car windows, fog on the road, and chilly fingers means spring is not quite here yet.

Today I thought I'd share my little trick for teachers needing to defrost their car windows in a hurry.  I have never been late for school, but I did burn out my wiper blade motor because the blades were frozen to the window.  EXPENSIVE LESSON!

 
Forget the scraper and don't turn on the wipers to use the antifreeze de-icer.  If your blades are frozen, it will be the beginning of the end.

Simply put the antifreeze de-icer in a squirt bottle and spritz your window.  Wait only a few minutes, and presto, the blades will move freely and the ice will be melting in a hurry.  


Truly, I don't scrape any windows anymore, ever.  Why did it take me so long to figure this one out?  Not sure, but I think it is pretty clever.  Feel free to share.  

This was my drive to school today.  The fog didn't lift for hours.  I had a good day today.  Did you?
