If you haven't much experience with snow and ice, here are a couple of tricks if your car has to be parked outside. #1 After you've driven for awhile & the inside is warm, when you park your car ice will freeze around your wiper blades & they'll stick to the windshield. To stop this, pull the wiperblades out like you were going to clean the bottom of your WS. There is a lot less wear & tear on your blades. #2 Snow piles up on your windshield. Cut a large piece of plastic material to fit your WS.
Park your car, cover your windshield with the plastic - your damp/wet WS will make the plastic cling, then freeze, to the window. Return to the car, get in & warm as usual. The heat will melt the ice. Remove plastic & you'll have a clean WS.You'll stay warm because you're not scraping snow.

Everyone has to shop and shopping when there's snow on the ground isn't exactly fun! IF you choose to park your car far away from the entrance for mor exercise, imagine the cardio you can get while pushing a fully loaded grocery cart in the ice and snow! It's a great quick workout, especially if you have to go uphill. PLEASE don't slip on the ice! Be careful!
