windshield wipers crapped out on me

During saturdays big blizzard nor'easter (3 inches here), I could see my wind shield wipers on my 84 full size jimmy start to slow down and then completely stop. I would turn them off for a while and turn them off after a couple of minutes and they would start up and kind of work for another few minutes and then they would stop again. They finally stopped completely and I was plowing with no wipers for like 2 hours. Thank god I used rainex on my windshield. SNow and water just beaded right off. What should I do to fix my wipers. There is no snow or ice around them now, so thats not the reason why it stopped. What do I do now?

snow showers expected this weekend.

I just added about 400 pouds of sand in the back to get better traction

same thing happened to me while i was plowing a neighbors driveway......but it was just an ice build up. I guess it was just a rookie mistake because i didnt clean around them before i started.
