    I discovered that if I fashion a cardboard box to fit atop my windshield (and windows), those cold, clear nights don't require ice scarping. The moisture gets absorbed by the cardboard. I just toss the cardboard in the car and re-use.

    Brilliant! I will have to try it out after we get out from under this rain.

    That's a good idea. Also, if there's a snowfall, leaving the snow on the windshield until you're ready to go accomplishes the same thing. It's when it's brushed off that the window gets badly iced up.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    During a big snow storm in Massachusetts, I walked around the Tufts Vet School campus I noticed something "a bit odd"

    Nearly every car had it's windshield wipers lifted up off the windows. At first I thought it was a prank

    Someone explained that it allows the melting water to drain off the warm windshield and prevent the wipers from icing to the windows.

    Lived in Massachusetts for 25 years and first I'd heard of it but they were right.

    I use to do that, but now I just throw a tarp over all the windows.

    Too bad they haven't discovered that technology up here yet.
