Well last week was actually wrecked by Snow and heavy A/C use . . . .

Record Snow Fall and Record High's all in 1 week. . . . .

The Local news used the Snow to point out that Global warming was a Hoax; on the same broadcast that they reported a record high. lol

Windshield Heat

I wonder if it's possible to somehow route warm, underhood air, to the windshield -- instead of using the defroster. The heater core really has to be cranked-up to prevent icing (then the coolant temps drop).

Gotta love Florida winters.
My little city had a holiday parade today....it must've been 85 degrees, I kid you not.

Sounds great to those up north, but it's December and I'm not supposed to be sweating.

It was a toasty 12* F this morning after snow Friday, then rain, then freezing over, then rain some more, then freezing again. Never snapped the wipers, I just suck it up and use the defrosters.

I do get some strange looks when I open my window and wipe the snow buildup off the side of the windshield, though.
