cold windshield warm heart?

I awoke this morning in the mountains of Colorado or at least that’s what it felt like this morning. Californians are not a hearty breed, San Franciscans are even less. We adjust to our small sliver of weather and whenever the temperature or barometer strays from it’s normal location all hell breaks loose. On those rare days in San Francisco when the temperature rises above 85 degrees there will be naked people in one of the streets somewhere. This morning my car was covered in ice, somehow I doubt I will see any naked people in the streets today. Now I don’t have an icescrapper in my car, I also didn’t have access to a hose, so I had to let the car heat up and turn on the defroster and use the windshield wipers... I was surprised the fluid wasn’t frozen too. The healing powers of Windex. I'm also pretty sure that cold climate people are cringing at the idea of using your windshield wipers as a de-icer.

Nah, I've done it a couple times. Usually, with less than stellar results, because the windshield washer fluid then refreezes on my windshield and has to be scraped off with the wipers. But sometimes it does work!

Yeah, this weather has been major ass suckage lately...

Tell me about it. In a town that has sun 300 days out of the year and the women can go topless legally, ice is a foreign concept. And it snowed! You'll have to check out my pictures that I took yesterday, posted earlier today.

i'm not cringing at all. i'm one of those silly people that lives in a cold climate and doesn't own a scrapper either so i have to turn my car on every morning and wait 15 minutes while my back and front windows de-ice. yeah... not so energy/environment friendly but i'm lazy (of course this is after i spend 10 minutes wiping the new snow from my roof/windshield/hood of my car).

on a completely different note, have you bought the new WoW expansion yet?

Yes i did. I was foaming at the mouth to play an alean. I have a Draenei character on Ysera named "Draenei" not sure how I got the name but I did!

What made me cringe was the talk of using a hose. The difference in the water temp might have caused your windshield to crack.

My friend Claudia did the water trick and cracked her windshield. :-(

I downloaded a few of his mixes. I'm glad your enjoying them. I really liked the BT song too.
