Perils of the Icy Windshield

Monday I went out to my car after work, during the big snowstorm, for those who missed that somehow. I scraped the windshield a bit, then figured I ought to start the car first. When i started it, the wipers were still turned on. One wiper moved the other was stuck in ice. This broke the link between them, and the second wiper, luckily on the passenger side, moved very little.

This being 3AM, I figured I should just drive, as there was nothing I could do about it. Then, about halfway home, in the middle of a barely-plowed road, the second wiper came back to life. I smiled for a moment until I noticed it was out of sync with the main wiper. Then suddenly, the smaller wiper got caught up in the main wiper, and the main wiper bent the smaller one all to heck. I had to stop in the middle of the road (no way was I about to try the shoulder) and separate them. The little bent one was lifeless the rest of the way home.
