Snow

One of my classmates in Mass. has 14" of snow on her SUV, it is light and fluffy, and she can not get it off, she is a short lady. I told her to get the leaf blower out and blow it off. She nixxed that idea, any suggestions for her.

I also said that us Rednecks would have had it off hours ago, "OK give it the gas Bubba.".

My father was my inspiration for woodworking, wish he was still around for more advice. Luv ya Dad.

Try a broom if it's fluffy.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Shop floor push broom. That's how I can clean off my Suburban in a minute.
Where I live, slab avalanches are more of a concern than some fuzz on a vehicle.

That's what I use. Hate driving around with snow on the hood. It just blows right onto windshield and causes site problems.. which leads me to one of my pet peeves... people that don't clean off all their windows after it snows so they can't see me out of their back window or side and they don't clean off their break and turn lights so I can't tell what they are doing.

Sad thing is, a local kid killed himself because he couldn't see out of his car.
Jumped in, drove away, turned a corner into the sun and whanged a pole at high speed.
I think that my neighbors are faintly envious to see me shovel off the 'Burb in a minute with the shop broom.
If they didn't have such short arms and deep pockets, they could try monkey-see, monkey-do.
It's a cheap fix. Even faster when the snow is like sugar in cold WX.

I moved out of Chi-town for many reasons but one was I was tired of the snow and severe cold.
Good riddance to it.

Here, so far this winter we've had 3" of snow.
First snow was 1" .... Second was 2". Both only stuck around for 2 days and it melted away. 50 degrees today.

But yeah, I used a shop broom as well.

In Maine we used brooms and snow shovels to get the snow off. If she's short, a step stool will help a lot. Even "light and fluffy" snow is going to be heavy if it's 14" deep.
