So one of the biggest mysteries to me since moving to Indiana in 2010 is that none of my neighbors seem to own ice scrapers for their cars. Come winter time, while I'm scraping the ice off my windshield, I see people trying to use their wipers and just looking confused at their vehicles.
I grew up in Wisconsin, and lived most of my adult life in the Northwestern part of the state. One thing in everyone's car there is an ice scraper (or two) for the winter. And while it's not quite as cold down here in Indiana, I'd say there's still a solid three months where that $5 piece of plastic is exceptionally handy.
Frankly, with the fluctuating temperatures, I think I scrape my windshield off more often now that I'm in Indiana than I did back in Wisconsin. Yet I am still the only one who doesn't seem to stare at their iced over windshield with a confused look in my apartment parking lot every morning.
Should I just buy a bunch and hand them out to the confused masses? Or maybe I should sell them for an exceptionally high markup?
I smell a business opportunity...
