Well the other day I went out to put the windshield cover on my car and low and behold the elastic was not very stretchy any more. I was really not impressed by it anyway as it never covered my wipers and the ice and snow would build up on them. So in essence it was not doing everything I wanted it to do. SO! I decided to figure out an alternative method for keeping the snow and frost/ice build up off my windshield. I got to searching on Pinterest and Youtube and came across a video of an older gentleman explaining how he covered his windshield for only a few dollars. I watched it and said.. hey what could I lose.
here is his video
Now the tarp here at Walmart was $5.00 and it was 6×8 not 5×7 like he explained in the video. I guess things are bigger here in Canada eh..hahahaha
So we tried it. It was put on Maggie’s truck and my car. Now all week I had been letting it come down about 1/2 way on my hood on my car, but for some reason yesterday (lazy and in a hurry) I folded it in half to put it on. It fit great, covered the wipers and I was happy with that. I walked away pretty proud of myself. Well. if you watch the tarp come off the truck this morning we were amazed it worked so well!.. YAY
So next is my car.. Like I said I decided to fold it in half, mostly for speed and convenience on my part. This didn’t go as well as the truck..hahahaha Note to self, cover the hood a little more than I did yesterday. The video fail is hilarious. but it taught me a lesson for the next snow storm.
So that has been our test. All in all it was a good test with good results.
