This cool new yet quite 19th century nautical-inspired Tempo Drop Storm Glass is a sealed teardrop-shaped glass container that is thought to be able to predict the weather depending on whether it's clear, cloudy, or has crystals forming inside, just like Admiral Fitzroy observed with his storm glass on the HMS Beagle. After a little bit of research, it seems that even to this day scientists aren't exactly positive how the distilled water, camphor, ethanol, and other liquids inside the storm glass are able to react based on the current weather conditions, but possible theories include temperature changes, pressure changes, or even electromagnetic changes in the atmosphere could be the cause. So even though it's very possible that it's not always accurate, it's still a really cool and unique curio to put on display. Check out the video below to see it in action. ⛈️

Heated Ice Scraper
A couple of days ago we had a pretty big winter storm here in Chicago with a nice ice storm to start it off. My truck was a solid sheet of ice underneath the frozen snow the next morning. It took me literally half an hour of scraping away plus two cans of de-icer before I could barely clear a spot big enough to see out the windshield. I've never seen such stubborn ice before. This will never happen again, because I went online and found the ultimate killer ice scraper, the Heated Ice Scraper! Just charge the cordless scraper and when you're ready, flip the switch. It instantly heats up and melts the ice away. Too bad it doesn't have a brush on the back, but it's definitely a great tool to have in your arsenal against annoying winter snow and ice!
