Electric ice scraper handy for those of us without heat vision
By Dan Moren
It’s been an odd winter so far here in the northeast. No snow to speak of, and temperatures in the 40s and 50s. Still, there has been a morning or two where I’ve had to scrape the old windshield off. On the one hand, there’s something cathartic about ice scraping—on the other hand, I could easily do with less time spent in the freezing cold.
So why not soup up the old ice scraper with a little bit of the old electric magic? Eddie Bauer, of all places, is offering
a powered ice scraper. Just plug it into your car’s cigarette lighter; a fifteen foot cord allows reach to all of your car’s windows—unless you’re driving a Hummer.
At $15, it’s a pretty good deal for avoiding frostbite.
