Jesse was driving when the wipers got stuck in the up position.
Not too big a problem because California is sunny but it did
compromise visibility. We stopped somewhere in the space
between sprawls, the third fix-it shop was the first not to charge
$50 - $70 for a diagnosis of what we thought was obvious:
something was broken. Matt and the guy got under the dash
and by luck knocked the arms back into rest. The mechanic
recommended a $30 wiper motor but we didn't have time nor the
inclination to track one down. Dan bought RainX, rubbed it on.
