We only get rain a few days a year here. When we do it is often at night. This creates an occasional problem because I consistently neglect my dried out and heat battered windshield wipers. Then when it does rain, I can’t see, but it doesn’t last long so I just drive carefully, promise myself I’ll remember to replace them this time, then forget for another six months.
We did our safety inspection early this year, and I actually remembered to replace my wipers rather than get another warning. This was all one week before it rained!
