My Windshield Wiper

Driving in a blustery winter storm today, my windshield wipers were once again frantically wiping the blowing storm away from my view in my heated car.  I kept repeating to myself It's March 3rd.  Why is it still snowing?  I wish I had snow tires.  I am DONE with this winter of 2015.  

As I am saying all these thoughts to myself, I see my windshield wiper on the driver side fly off, and into the black of the night.  Are you kidding me?  Where did that wiper go?  

I am only a mile or two from my house, so with careful driving and a heated dashboard that melted the snow once it hit my window, I was able to navigate myself home without any problems.

My driver wiper is in a ditch somewhere.  When the snow of 2015 finally melts, my wiper will be an artifact of this intense and coldest winter that I ever lived through.  Rest in peace windshield wiper.


  1. I am done with the winter, too! All I do is shovel, shovel, shovel... and shovel. I am glad you were not too far from home and were able to arrive safely!

  2. I agree! No more snow and no more frigid temperatures! Your post caught my eye because one of my students told me today that she broke her windshield wiper on the way to class! You are not the only one who lost her windshield wiper.

  3. This winter needs to go. I'm writing from Ohio, and we're supposed to get yet another storm tomorrow! All of these disruptions has caused a frenzy in my middle school. I hope that your windshield wiper finds a mate in the white abyss on side of the road. #sol15
