OK, all of you north of Kentucky can stop laughing right now. This post isn’t for you. You already have one of these — or more likely one of the industrial kind that’s the size of a broom and has a brush on the end. This post is for others (like me) that live in the South where we only get ice and snow once or twice a winter if we’re lucky.
I’m suggesting you get one of these now because if you wait until that “once or twice” rolls around you’re going to find the shelves bare and lots of annoying, clucking salespeople laughing at you. The only thing worse than finding yourself without a reasonable way to clear the ice off your windshield after work is having to listen to one of the old guys at Ace Hardware lecture you about how you should have bought a scraper “back in September when they were on sale for $0.50 and there were buckets of them all over the store.”
Trust me, it’s better to hear it from me. If you live anywhere north of Miami, go buy one right now, and stick it in your car.
