That’s right, a woman invented the first windshield wipers! Many of us assume because it is a care-related device that a man would be the natural inventor, me included. We stand corrected. Inventor Mary Anderson, from Alabama, received a patent for her car-window cleaning device in 1903.
Today’s forcast calls for an all-day soaker. Especially thankful today for Mary’s invention!
