Slightly OT, but does anyone here consider silicone wiper blades worthy of the price tag?

I've tried silicone and regular I haven't noticed a difference. Try it once and see for yourself the extra $20 is worth the experiment.

I actually only tried silicone for the driver's side iirc

My old car which didnít have CarPlay I had a wizgear mount for my phone. It was excellent. I donít understand why anyone has those clip things to hold the phone anymore. I slip the magnet inside my phone case, and I just put it on the mount. The magnet is pretty strong it ainít going nowhere
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

An imaginary idea of mine is to have a drone in my trunk that I can send out when in traffic to see what the cause is and if I should look for an alternative route.
Issue number one is - I don't have a drone.
Two, I would need to secure it well when not in use. Plus for landing I don't know if it'll be able to get back in. Maybe a helipad of some sort.
Three, the trunk doesnt open fully. That I can use a string of some sort to open it fully and close it. Or send it out by hand.
Four, it would have to be quick so I can call it back quickly. Or Id have to pull over to get it. That's not good. I don't either know the accuracy when calling them back.
Someone stole my idea :(
Although looks very slow.

For current weather conditions:
Snow socks for tires apparently they have better traction than snow tires or chains really easy to put on and very small to store in car. Most are rated for up to 25MPH
