Around the Toolmonger shop area we get about 2-4 inches of snow a year, so it’s a somewhat rare occurrence. On that day (which turned out to be yesterday), the general populace down here seemed to lose their collective minds. Folks up north have been buried in it for weeks, yet a little ice on the windshield and white flakes on the grass and it’s suddenly cause for wacky behavior. Fellow Southerners: Buy an ice scraper and suck it up; quit making us look bad.
I’m likely preaching to the choir here because almost anyone reading this would have it together enough to buy a scraper before it’s required and stow it where it needs to be — which may or may not be inside the iced-over auto in the driveway.
Up north they’re digging their cars out every hour and getting up 30 minutes early to warm the truck up. 98 cents for a basic scraper found at the local gas station in the autumn will stand you in good stead on the one or two days a year when it will be needed around here. Just sayin’.
