We are born with the knowledge in our DNA to always clear the cars first before shoveling or snowblowing, up heah in Maine.:biggrin:

Eh, no need to clean off the car. Just clear a nice portal through the snow so that you can see out the windshield and let the wind take care of the rest. That is how we do it in Michigan. LOL

The local po-po look for those drivers, and issue tickets (revenue generators) for driving with an obstructed view. They even take pics for evidence.

That's how to get a ticket in New Hampshire!

Hmm, maybe Michigan police are too busy at to doughnut shop to care. Remember it's cold out there.

C'mon, I know that. I'm just being silly.

Wrong advice. You need to clean the driveway first - just enough to make a path around the car, then clean the car, and only then clean the driveway properly. Otherwise you'd (A) spend quite a few minutes knee-deep in snow, and (B) have to deal with scraping compacted snow.

lol.. that's how i did it too :biggrin: i wax my truck before it snows and this makes it slick enough for the whole roof and hood slabs to slide off when i hit 30..

i love seing those cars down the beltway that creates their own snow storm in their wake when they dont scrape the snow off their cars..

Thats what I do... I only clear off the windows, then let the wind take care of the rest. I also live far enough out of town that the po-po isn't an issue.

I got in trouble last year. It snowed pretty good and instead of shoveling, I walked outside and wrote "Subarus Only" in the snow at the bottom of the driveway.

My wife wasn't too happy about that, let me just tell you.

Haha. I like your thinking. It's more in the line of my lazyness :biggrin:
Too bad none liked your idea
