What is the best way to keep windshield wipers in good (low ice build-up and ready to be used but not a partial job because of above mentioned ice build-up) working condition during a snow/freezing rain storm? I have seen some people with them stuck out in the air. Other people have tried a towel over them.

Sticking them straight out works good in snow and ice rain, but is best when used with a towel, socks on the wipers or other waterproof cover. Ice getting into their joints stops them from working and can be a problem even if they are sticking straight out. Spraying something on the windshield works even better with this.
