    It's made of pretty tough plastic, a little snow or salt shouldn't hurt it. Heck, a layer of salt will probably make it even more effective.

    Mine holds water sometimes between the plate & the shield. That might make for an interesting GOL test. "Dry against holding moisture." The interesting thing is when the water is there the shield is almost perfectly clear & a little hazy when dry.

    heck no, the dirtier the better

    Anything to damper the retroreflective surface will work.
