Man, that is a lot of ice for 20 minutes. Hope all is well down there. I heard power was out in a lot of places.

Looks like my mine did this morning. i had a family emergency and ended up at a hospital in council bluffs, and by morning everything was covered in ice. But having this commander was a lot a of piece of mind. Its truely is made for winter conditions.I am in awe at how well it handles while driving on pure ice. The worse the weather gets, the more i love this machine.

Did the heat from your headlights melt the ice on the headlight lenses?

I guess so. My wipers were freezing with the defroster on high- thats the only weakness. If I had to go much longer I would have had to stop and knock the ice of them. Wish they made heated wiper blades. Man I miss Jacksonville.
