Crazy Behavior in Winter
People in DC do some crazy things in the winter, see the picture above of a car parked in the building behind my apartment building, with its windshield wipers propped up in the air, allegedly to prevent the wipers from freezing on the windshield when it snows. I wrote about this last winter, see the post and picture here, I am still not at all convinced that this is an effective method to deal with winter snow. And it hasn't even really snowed yet in DC this winter, and yet I have seen many cars like this one, with the windshield wipers up in the air.
I have also seen numerous people in the last few weeks walking around in shorts, even when the weather has been quite frigid, and I saw the same thing in Michigan in December.
