Jayburt, Thanks again for the info on the windshield covers. Don't think I'll be going anywhere near the place for a couple of days. Gotta wait until all the crazy shoppers leave. :)

annette, Chocolate cake is good, so is vanilla and yellow. Bavarian cream pie is good too. Oh boy, here comes the extra weight for the holidays. lol

MadDog, Always nice to just take off when it's that cold. Does wonders for the tranny. :)

Hope everyone is having a nice turkey (or whatever food you celebrate with) hangover. :)

DG, and I have lots of trees on my property..just not any in the driveway ;) but I can park close to one near the back of the house. And a correction, that windsheild cover pro at Menards in 3.99, not 2.99 as I said in previous post,sorry, was there today and seen it. The local Odds and junk shop had them for 2.99 earlier this yr.,but not as nice as the ones at Menards.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving :)

annette, Parfait sounds good. :)

Jayburt, You can also park under a tree. Even without leaves, unless it's very cold, it provides shelter from scraping. Ah, the knowledge we have now that we didn't have when we were first driving. :)

MadDog, My favorite thing is when people in warmer (not necessarily warm) states say that you don't have to let new cars warm up. Bet they never tried to start a car when it was -20 out and just take off. ;)

teejay, Sounds like an idea. Also sounds like something that might cuase a problem if not done right. lol Hope you have a nice holiday and I agree, people shouldn't have to work on holidays. :)

DG, I have seen do it yourself kits that wrap a tube around the heater hose, well actually let me back up, they put a new hose into the windshield washer container, replacing the existing one with a longer more flexible one that wraps around the radiator heater hose(s) and feed the washer sprayer from there. I haven't done that yet, but it is tempting.

Hey everyone, gone for a couple days I certainly hope that you all have a wonderful turkey day and, if you go out and shop on Friday, stay save. And Lastly, PLEASE don't shop on Thursday, it is a day when we should all be home with friends and family and celebrating, not spending money to prepare for the upcoming season of greed, be thankful for what you have. If WE don't shop, stores won't open and ALL can celebrate with Thanks. Here in Maine the "Blue Laws" still prohibit opening of most stores on Thanksgiving day for which I am thankful. One NOTABLE exception is L.L. Bean, they are open 24/7/365 (3666 in leap year). They have a special legislative exception, it is pretty cool and they treat their employees pretty well so....

Annette, there is such thing as a 'diet' this time of year..its nature way of making sure we put on a bit of warmth layer for the colder weather thats here and coming too, thats why she has the harvest come in right before this time :)

Best Windshield idea is a carport if you put up even a cheap one, other than a garage, which in my case has no room for vehicles even though its supposed to hold two.

annette, Maybe the food of the day people are saving their appetites for turkey day. lol

bubb1es, Not as bad as cars used to rust but still noticeable. :(

MadDog, Guess not. lol Car parts do not work well in cold and if you were having a problem before, chances are that what part it was will break when it gets cold.

Jayburt, Thanks for the tip on the covers at Menards. I'll have to check them out after the crowds thin out on Friday or Saturday. :)

teejay, Thanks for the advice on getting the top edge tight. I had a friend who had a car with heated washer fluid. Unfortunately there was a recall on that year because of a risk of fire. Nice option though for the winter. :)

I have one of those windshield covers, unfortunately I don't always remember to use it but, when I do, it works pretty well. The tough part is getting the top edge tight. It always takes a little adjusting but, it helps a huge amount overall. I also use a "deicer" windshield washer fluid and I Rain-X the windshields too. My old Subaru had the cold weather package and had heating coils at the base of the windshield to melt the wipers out, had one on the back as well for that wiper, it helped some.

Hi everyone ;) An idea about how to save your windshield..they make a cover that usually works quite well, and Menards has them on sale this week for just 2.99,no I don't work there,lol ,and NO I don't own one(but wish I did) just thought I'd share.

Since its so close to Thanksgiving (Happy Holiday early everyone ;) I declare everyday a Thanksgiving item day..1 day pumpkin pie, another greenbean casserole etc..and of course,Thurs. is Turkeyday!! And remember gang, you are what you eat..oh, and I eat a lot of turkey...

teejay, Guess you're nutty enough that you didn't have to celebrate. ;)

MadDog, Common sense would just tell you to never do that. Obviously the guy had never run water over a tray of ice cubes (old style metal tray). :)

bubb1es, Unless you put salt in a water solution it's not going to stay. If it's an ice storm, it will probably wash off anyway. Also just a reminder of what salt does to car bodies might make you want to rethink that one. :)

Bubbles and DG....It rarely rains in Florida when it is cold enough to freeze. If it rains, it is usually warm out. Rain seems to be followed by a cold front this time of the year. Once you get to winter, it gets to dry season and then it is fire season after that. So towels freezing to a windshield usually aren't a problem. Oh....hot water would be bad due to the rapid change in temps...a buddy did that once and he cracked his windshield and it fell in. We told him to not do it but he poured hot water on it not once, but twice! LOL

...DirtGirl: "I've found that if you don't wash your windshield before you get home, it scrapes easier as the ice doesn't bond as easily to dirt or road spray."

...Thank you Buddy! :) That makes sense because a li'l bit of road spray likely would have some kind of salt in it. Which leads me to wonder, for those of us who don't have a super long commute, if sprinkling a bit of Morton salt on the windshield after getting home for the evening before an ice storm would help too? Of course RainX would likely be better for the glass.

Sleep well & have a wonderful Monday everybuddy! :)

bubb1es, I was just going to say, don't put a beach towel on your windshield, it will freeze.

I've found that if you don't wash your windshield before you get home, it scrapes easier as the ice doesn't bond as easily to dirt or road spray. Of course, after your car warms up in the morning or whenever, it's ok to wash it. :)

I cannot believe that people would pour hot water on a cold windshield but I guess they do. ::shakes head::

..."bubbles....you lay it across the windshield and the frost cannot reach the glass"

...Thank you MadDog, I was wondering about that & other potential "quick fixes" and ran across this ABC article, "Tips to get the ice off your car":

"To get through that ice, [Kirk] Piper [with Safelite AutoGlass] said the best thing you can do is pretty basic. Start your car early, let the defroster do its job to warm up the windshield, and use your ice scraper to slowly scrape it away.

But everyone wants a fast solution - so what about hot water? Piper said that's one of the worst things you can do.

'A lot of times people can have damage on their windshield they're not aware of,' he said. 'A little chip might be in it [and] the hot water is going to hit that. With the change in temperature from the cold of the ice to the hot, it's just going to crack that windshield out.'

You can also try to pre-treat your windshield, with something like Rain-X.

The Internet has plenty of suggestions to try and help you avoid ice on your windshield. One of the most popular is a beach towel. If you tuck the towel in your car doors, the ice freezes to the towel instead of your windshield. In the morning, just remove the towel.

'Some people put cardboard underneath the windshield wipers which helps, but really the best thing to do is give yourself a little bit of extra time in the morning and heat the car up,' said Piper.

The beach towel isn't foolproof either. Piper said that freezing rain could freeze the towel right to your actual windshield."

Very grateful to have had nice 50° temps this weekend, it's raining today but yesterday my kiddo & I went and played in the park, supposed to get cold & snowy again here beginning tomorrow. My heart goes out to all those affected by the early snowstorm in New York and in other areas, the weather just seems to get crazier every year. ♡

Wishing you a fun Sunday & a wonderful week everybuddy! :)

...No kidding? Does putting a beach towel on the windshield really keep one from having to scrape it as much? Please share the details, thank you! :)

The female contestants started grabbing some of us Marines and I just happened to have a white t-shirt....they sat us in chairs and soaked us down....then the women started screaming for us to take our shirts off...lol

RJ... **whistles innocently....GRINS**

DG...they wouldn't sell very many. People down here like to put beach towels on their wind shields. It actually works pretty good. A few of us at work decided to pull them off the windshields and toss them on the roof of the car or lay them out on the hoods.....there were some pretty ticked off people and we were sitting in the outside break area laughing about it!

Ann.. What Mad said! LOL

A big shout out to all of our friends in the upper midwest, Michigan near Traverse City and upstate New York near Buffalo etc., I hope you all get dug out soon, sorry it has been such an early and massive start to winter this year.

DG, I have heard the same thing about honey and you did just fine in stating the facts.

Still cold here in Maine, 30's again today, though by Monday it is supposed to be mid 50's and rain! I would love the mid 50's the rain I could live without. It has been dark and gloomy an awful lot of late and with the days getting really short... we've lost almost 6 hours since June 21st, my SAD is starting to kick in.

Saw a GREAT concert last night by Straight No Chaser, highly recommend seeing them if they are in your area, they are a 10 man a capella singing group, seen them several times and they are always awesome and put on a entertaining show. I think they are in Boston tonight and they are scheduled for Buffalo on Friday? Wonder how that will go???

It went from the 50's to under 10' at night here for 2 nights,but warmer this evening,only down to 28' so far..yes I live in the great north. Was a shock to the system and we also got around 6" of snow,4 of which stuck to the ground.

MadDog, It's going to be about 37 here on Saturday. That's about a 40 degree temperature change in 2 days. My guess is that your weather will warm up too. :)

teejay, I've heard that local honey is good for those with allergies because it has pollen and other local ingredients that will help build your sensitivity to allergans in the area that you live in. Not sure if I said that correctly or not. :)

Ann, Honey is good to eat, that's all...one should always eat ones honey, that's the gist of it!

And I agree with Mad who says that RJ would say beer and women, I would change my beer to scotch or irish whiskey though, but that is personal preference.

For all of you in the upstate New York area, sorry about all that snow, but it IS impressive! Today is starting out much nicer than yesterday, it is sunny and blue sky and really nice, just cold and windy, wind chills in the teens. Not close to our normal average of 47 until late this weekend, brrrrrrr 'til then!

Tonight I get to go see the group Straight No Chaser, they are terrific, check them out on YouTube and check out their website. They are performing in Portland Maine tonight and there are still tickets left last I knew. It should be a really entertaining evening.

DG, I can only hope winter is shorter on the other end....

Ann, RE: bread, made two loaves this past weekend, one basic white using a mix of King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour and Bread flour. The other used bread flour only but, it had buttermilk, butter, and honey in it, some yummy... I you know what I say about eating honey.

RJ....we are getting the same weather you are! I'm not complaining though! Beats the tornados and severe storms we had this afternoon!

Ann.....nothing like some good, fresh, hot bread!

annette, Homemade bread is one of the best smells in the world. :)

rj, Going to hit below zero tonight if the temp keeps dropping. :(

teejay, It's definitely colder than normal for this time of year. More like late december weather. Wonder if that means that winter will be one month shorter. ;)
