This particular storm includes rain, sleet, ice and snow.  Just depending on where you are as to what and how much of that stuff you will get.

I have lived in Minnesota for most of my life.  And other than a year in Arizona, I have lived all of my life in the Midwest. Meaning I have dealt with this winter weather "fun" all of my life.  I have never, and I mean never seen this habit until I came back to work in St. Cloud, and actually only in this parking lot.  What I am talking about is people lifting their windshield wipers up when there is a snow storm on the way.

On that note, I also have never had an issue with my windshield wipers freezing to the windshield to the point where I think I may need to raise them up in anticipation of said storm.  When I clean off my car, I just lift them up a bit, clean out underneath and carry on.  It's not that big if a deal.  Or, maybe I've just been lucky?  Is this a thing that most people do and I just haven't noticed until now?

I feel like windshield wipers aren't meant to be in this position for any extended length of time.  I feel like there is a good chance of them breaking or just not making good contact with the windshield as they had before. Like they won't clean as well.  Now, I haven't had that problem, but I feel like that could be a likely scenario.  Is it really necessary to life your windshield wipers in anticipation of a storm?

What say you?
