As we enjoy this mild stretch of weather, let's not forget that several months of cold mornings and frosty windshields lay in wait. Be more prepared than me. This past weekend, which if you'll recall was cold and at times snowy, I discovered that I was without my trusty ice scraper and brush (which I probably got around to taking out of my car sometime in mid-August, y'know, just to be safe). Yes, the backup plan was to use half a quart of windshield wiper fluid but I'd run out, in all honesty because this is usually my lazy first approach. So in a pinch, this flimsy cd case served as my ice scraper on the way to hockey in Rochester last Sunday. It worked better than when I used an expired credit card last year. Some of us never learn...

This is not really designed for doing much more than holding a cd.
