I decided to do a quick post on wiper blades. Regular all season wiper blades are just not holding up to the cold, ice and snow. All season wiper blades have openings between the blade and arm that collects snow and ice. If they are not pulled off and cleaned before being used, then they break and tare. The attached photo is just an example of what I have been seeing multiple times a day.
I also attached a picture of a winter wiper blade since they have a heavy duty rubber sleeve that covers the whole arm to help keep them from breaking. They tend not to break from pushing the snow.
Remember to clean your windshield, pull those blades up and clean them before use!
