WTF! i dont have an ice scrapper

so i woke up today and its freezing I got in my car to go to class and notice my radar detectors suctions have fallen off, so i take 5 minutes trying to restick it with no sucess

then i hit the windshield wipers to get the fog off the windshield... or so i thought

SCREEEEEETTCHH

WTF my windshield is covered in ice, not a paper thin sheet that just comes off with some washer fluid, but a nice thick sheet, so i sit there in shock wondering wtf is going on (i live in central florida for christ sake) finally a grab a gatorade bottle and scrape a small patch off my windshield and go on my way totally blind


wtf... its florida, i dont think the autozones here even stock icescrappers

I think you can find ice scrapers pretty easily at auto stores, I just vaguely recall seeing some but I can't tell you where with 100% confidence. I had a small regular window cleaner (sponge on one side, rubber on the other) and I'd use the rubber side to scrape the ice off when that happened to me last year on my old car... it wasn't meant for the job (took longer than a simple ice scraper) but it eventually worked.

global warming has to do with extreme variations in weather conditions, not an overall increase in temperature.


and i have a bunch of ice scrapers if you would like one.
