Are you prepared for snow?! Ok, so it has been unseasonably warm in the Midwest and not even a trace of snow yet. But, I still get nervous about coming out to my car in the parking lot after work and having to clear a couple feet of snow off of my car. I recently received the Snow Joe snow broom for a review (and a giveaway for you!), just one more step towards my preparation for snow.
Snow Joe Snow Broom
The snow broom is easy to assemble (and disassemble) so it can fit in your car easily and help you clear snow fast! The snow “broom” is foam, so it is super light, and it looks like it will be easy to push quite a bit of snow off of the car. The handle is adjustable, so even if you have a huge SUV – you should be able to clear at least to the middle of the windshield AND there is an ice scraper – so stop using your store credit cards to scrape the ice of your windshield (or maybe that is just me)!
Snow Joe has some tips for you, so you can have a snow ready trunk:
- For fast, dry snow removal that won’t damage the car’s finish, every driver should be equipped with Snow Joe’s Snow Broom. With its flat face and 46-inch extension, the snow is pushed, not pulled, in one clean sweep across the vehicle. Now drivers can quickly brush off the snow from one side of the car onto the ground – not their coat –keeping them dry and warm. The Snow Broom also will help keep the car protected from winter wears with its over-sized, nonabrasive foam head that won’t scratch the paint.
- Don’t depend on the light in your car to see. Instead, keep a small LED flashlight to conserve you car’s battery. Plus LED flashlights use less energy than traditional flashlights, so they will last longer.
- If that battery does die, have jumper cables on hand to jolt it back to life.
- Don’t catch a cold! Store blankets, extra gloves and hats in the trunk.
- Being stuck roadside makes you susceptible to an accident, especially when it’s icy. Have hazard signs ready. Those reflective signs could prevent an already bad situation from turning ugly.
- Always keep a first aid kit handy. Under bad conditions, ambulances may take longer to arrive.
