For a while.
Something must have broken on the attatchment of the blade to the arm, because little parts of the blade started flying off as I was driving down 494 at 60mph. The blade itself came loose, and i managed to pull off onto the shoulder before the blade hurtled off as well. Then, as I got ready to get out of the car and put the blade out of its misery, the wipers gave one last pass across the windshield, and the hook at the end of the smaller wiper grabbed onto the big wiper, and the big wiper bent the smaller arm again.
I bent the small arm at a 90º angle from the windshield and promptly took the car in Wednesday morning. The cost for repair was just over $120.
