My trip home was amazingly easy. It seems that all my thirty mile trip with both defrosters on full bast combined with direct sunlight weakened the Ice. My front and rear winshield were clear and three out of four side windows wee clear. By the time I pulled into the town gas station even the fourth window was soft enough for the ice to be removed in seconds.
It is three degrees and the wind is starting to pick up. Overnight lows will be negative 5 with 15-20 mph wind. There was one bad week last year with -13 a few nights but it isn't so bad if there is no wind.
The roads were excellent, but the Quebecois on the Interstate seem to be on a suicide jihad going in the mid eighties at least. They do this in heavy fog as well and one does not know what is in that fog.
