This is your lucky day. Here's something daring but safe for you to try at home.
Put a 4-cup measuring cup of water in your freezer. Stir every half hour until it's slushy.
Put on a pair of knee high boots, if you have them. Regular footwear will do if you have no boots.
Pour the slushy ice water into the side of your boot (or other footwear).
This is how it feels to clean heavy, wet snow off my car.
I'm short (< 5 ft,), and when I pull the snow toward me with the snow brush, it lands right in my boots because my arm is not long enough to reach halfway across the car (even with the long-handled brush) unless I'm standing right next to it. Also, I can't push the snow away from me (off the other side of the car) for the same reason -- shortness.
Here's another experiment.
(What's that? You didn't like the last one?
It was safe, wasn't it?
Go on now, like a good little scientist.)
Make some ice cubes.
Put on some eye protection. (Remember, we must be safe!)
Crush the ice cubes into tiny, tiny bits.
Don't take off your eye protection just yet.
Get someone to throw the icy bits in your face. If no one will do this for you, throw them in your face yourself. It reduces the element of surprise, but it's almost as good.
This is how it feels to clean light, fluffy snow off my car when the winter wind is blowing.
Because I'm short . . . . . . . .
Ahhhh. Winter. Gotta love it.
This is not me. But I've looked like this a few times. (Photo: Pixabay)
I would wish you a shock-free week, my people, but if you tried these experiments, I'm afraid it's too late :)
