Misterman, if you live in snow country, you owe it to yourself to get a Snohoe

You know how it is: on a winter morning you go outside and the car is covered with fresh snow. Which you must remove before driving to town to replenish your liquor cabinet.

You lean forward to clear the windshield with wide sweeps of your combination snow brush/scraper and soon you're covered with snow from chest to knee. Snow creeps into coat sleeves and tumbles into boot tops.

Or the snow is deep and you resort to the shovel that you keep in a handy spot on the porch. One careless move and you've scratched the paint.

In either scenario, an unsatisfactory snow event transpires, eh?

But, you -- fortunate Winter Person that you are -- possess a long-handled, lightweight Snohoe, magically created in Tahoe, California, which is also serious snow country.

You stand back from your snowy vehicle, and, with a combination of pulls and pushes, neatly and cleanly remove the white stuff.

No snow in your boots, no scratches on your new pickup.

Full disclosure here: I received a sample Snohoe from the company, courtesy of my brother Mike who turned me on to their website. But I'm not plugging their product because they gave me one -- it really works as advertised.

In the unforgettable words of the Silver Fox as she cleaned off my old Plymouth: "Hey, this really is a great tool!"

And she should know because I gave her my Snohoe as a companion present to the Sawzall I bought for her last birthday.
