Not a Fan

Now that the weather is wintry cold and windshields are beautifully frosted, the heater/fan in our Ford Focus quit working.

While on my travels today, I resorted to using the wiper fluid to defrost the windshield only to realize that I need new wiper blades and discover that, without ambient warmth, wiper fluid also freezes on cold surfaces. A couple times I had to pull over and kleenex off a viewing portal until I could get to Home Hardware (the "Doug store") for a replacement wiper blade.

By then, the temperature had risen enough for a clear windshield and I was able to tend to the rest of my day without visible distress.
