With the cold winter coming up, I have a little trick that helps keep my hand and arm warm and dry when I need to scrape ice from my car windshield.

I cut a leg off of an old pair of pants and zip-tie the leg over the handle of my ice scraper.

Now, when I clear my windshield, my arm stays warmer and a whole lot dryer.
