2002 Chevy Impala, wipers stuck in the vertical.

We had a few inches of very wet/heavy snow this morning. My daughter chose to activate her wipers instead of using a broom. She believes it wasn't so much the up-swing under load as much as the blades being kept from returning down all the way to the stops. I checked the 25a fuse and it's good. The wipers work but return to the vertical when done. The fuel gauge is swinging erratically as well. I finally disconnected the pos batt term for five minutes to no avail.
Thanks for any help.

my guess is that they are out of alignment. lossen the nut at the base of the wiper arm and remove them. turn the wipers on and then off. then reinstall them at the normal park loctation. see if that works.
