    Any tips on cleaning snow easily from the windows?

    I live in northern Minnesota and have never had to clean snow from windows. Is the snow sticking to your windows?

    A soft broom. Dealing with that exact situation this morning. :) A large window squeegee works as well.

    I am curious. Does blowing snow actually stick to the windows? Does the snow have to be "moist" for it to stick? Like I said, this has never happened to us.

    Today, we have a foot of heavy wet snow. Yes it blows at it is coming down. It hits windows and sticks very well. Just like it would on your vehicle windows.

    Snow doesn't stick to our vehicle windows either. That is, if the car is cold and is sitting outside. There may be some snow on the windshield and rear window because it isn't exactly vertical. That snow is easily brushed off. But, on the side windows, there is no snow even after a heavy snowfall. Now if the car was warm, when it started to snow, that's a different situation. That snow (as you probably know) will melt to the windows and then freeze to the window after the car has cooled off.

    I guess we are lucky we don't have to clean snow from house windows. It would be a pain on second story windows especially.

    If it bothers you close the blinds and don't look at it until it thaws.

    Leave it on the windows. It will actually help to insulate the house.
