Plagued by Ice Gobbet Gremlins

The weather site says it's 'fair' but I just blew my car's fuses trying to use the windscreen wipers on great two inch gobbets of ice stuck to the screen. It might only be 2 degrees C, but I can't drive a car with no wipers legally - it's specially stupid in sludge, when black crap is going to get thrown up onto my windscreen on any of the big roads.
So, cheers, gunky gobbets of ice, for giving me a morning off where me and my too big ski jacket get to go to Barking, one of the four corners of the Eastern Empire. I'm sure my boss won't mind that I've had three times the normal amount of days off this year. Or that Tybalt threw all my reports away (I've been trying out the line 'I'm not doing them again', but I haven't yet pushed it.)
And the little extra touch when you made the hot water heater bust so I had to use a kettle to wash for the last three days was nice. I nearly jumped sleepily into the freezing shower every morning, which I'm sure had you in stitches. I'm not sure if you're behind the mouldy bread, the too old cauliflower stinking out my fridge, the boiling hot coffee pot exploding over me, or the milk running out, but I wouldn't swear you weren't.

The wipers are "hers" now then?

Jealous! And suffering disappointment from a 'sexed up' weather forecast designed to draw attention away from the BBC and the Hutton Inquiry!

Hmm, perhaps that could have been expressed clearer. Jealous of your morning off, and not of your freezing shower or your cauliflower...

Yes, I know how it is to be without hot water, years in fact. My thanks to the inventors of electrickery and kettles and power showers. Why does my boiler for my radiators always wait for the coldest week of the year to join my water heater in its incapacitated state?

Regarding the windshield wipers, how about tying some string to each one and pulling them back and forth via your windows? Hmmm, maybe not.
