Minimalist Scraper

One of the reasons why I no longer live in the north is because I hate scraping my windows every morning before I go anywhere.

Since I’ve been working from home for so long, I’m blessed that I rarely have to do this anymore.

This morning the van needed to be dropped off for service so I had to follow behind to pick up Jennifer so we could get back home to do the radio show.

I walked outside and my little 96 Civic was covered in ice and the ice scraper I have apparently no longer has the ability to cut through the thinnest layer of frost.

So I do what I always do: scrape just enough to see out the window and hope the defroster will kick in quickly.

As I was driving with completely frost-ridden windows, I pondered how immensely lazy I felt considering not a single window was cleared completely.

I suppose one would say this was unsafe.

But probably not as unsafe as driving with frosted windows while also taking pictures of the frosted windows.

I may be a minimalist scraper, but at least I document my own laziness in an attempt to make up for the laziness.

Not sure it worked or not.

    That’s incredible. I haven’t even come close to having to scrape my windows yet in Portland Oregon!

    I should adopt that rule next time I relocate. Unfortunately, Kansas is not south enough. :p
