In California, I had to change the windshield wipers on my car every year. In Mississippi, I am finding this to be the case as well.
Why? Why even mention such a mundane, ordinary maintenance type thing? Why does it matter? Why is it a shock that it is the same here in Mississippi as it is in California?
In California, I had to change the wipers because the heat and dry weather made them unusable. They would sometimes shrivel up and other times the rubber would crack. Either way, they were useless garbage.
In Mississippi, the wipers are simply used up. It rains so much and so hard here that the wipers just don't have any wipe left in them!
Time to head to the car shop as we prepare for winter ice.
