quick fix is to blast cold air at your feet if it happens again on the road.
There a fuse thingy (not really sure what its called) on the fuse panel my the drivers foot. Its 1" wide, 1/2" tall and like 3/4" thick silver box with two tabs on it. (I'm great at describing stuff, arent I?) That thing is going bad, I fixed one by carefully taking the cover off and bending the metal so it would take more heat to break the circuit. I havent had much luck finding one at the parts store.
I think its called the fuse breaker for the wipers
