Motor still works to the right wiper arm. Looks like the driver side has come off whatever holds in place- possibly due to trying to run wipers when they were iced to the windsheild? Or perhaps it just got off it's gear. At work now haven't had time to look as it happened this morning while driving in mini blizzard. Anyone heard of this problem or has a quick road side/ parking lot repair so might be able to drive home with better visibility?

Yes I have heard of the problem, that's what happens when you do not shut your wiper blades off and you start your car the next morning and your wiper blades are frozen to the windshield, It's called total destruction of the wiper blade system, if you are lucky maybe the only thing that happened you striped out one of your wiper arms, and if you are really lucky, the rod came out of the wiper motor at any rate good luck.
