You see your significant other using a long-handled push broom to clear snow off of the top of their Ascent. What do you say to him/her?

Kinda tough actually.

Since you refer to the roof specifically I might just let it go because most people just leave that to become a sheet of ice then fall off in one big lump smashing and denting whatever poor sap is behind them and drives off while they deal with the damage.

I haven't tried it on the Ascent yet, but I have a moving blanket with a rope on two of the corners that I place on the roof before it snows. When its time to go, pull the ropes to the other side and the blanket pulls the snow off the roof.

Yes for the poll, I was referring to the roof. In real life, it was the side of the car too! :tango_face_surprise

My wife never clears snow off the car anymore as both cars are in the garage but even if we parked it outside I would be expected to do all the work which is how our relationship has been for a long time.

Luckily my kids are now old enough to help out. They shoveled the driveway without my help last time it snowed!

You say "Thank you sweetheart for clearing the snow off the car". Then you get a snow rake or have everything from the windshield forward covered in paint protective film and quit worrying about it.. Married 41.5 years to the same wonderful woman!

"Stoopppp!!!"

By my husband knows better, we grew up in the foothills / Northern California, no need to resort to a broom, there are tools for that!
