I had snow and ice all over the car, so I went to get the scraper I keep in the trunk. *SPLOOSH* I get a trunk full of snow. I feel like such an ass, it was one of those slap forhead moments. That's all for now, had to share this dumb move.

Take it from a Minnesotan.

Put it in the cabin!!!

Reason A) being yours...But reason B) being that your trunk will the the most likely to freeze shut, and when it does, you're SOL.

If a door freezes, you have 3 others to try...

I hate when you open the driver door and a little snow always falls in the seat, what a pain in the ass. I keep my scraper on the backseat floor cause I'm too lazy to open the trunk.

I keep it in the backseat most of the time, or drop it in the truck but I make sure to clean it off before opening it up.

Also, if you clean off around the doors when you open it you wont' get snow in on the seats.

Mine's in the back seat..... my trunk lock freezes often... [down]

I always remove the snow around the edge of the door before opening it... helps prevent getting it all over the seat.

I <3 snow!

I wipe the drovers door with my sleeve so that doesn't happen.

get an avant. not only is it much harder for a bunch of anything to fall in the hatch, you have something to chill out under in the rain.

A trunk full of snow isn't as bad as a passenger seat full of snow. Yesterday, I was too lazy to clean off my passenger window so I tried rolling it down just a bit to clear off the coating of snow. Damn one touch windows, it went down all the way before I could stop it and all the snow came flooding into my car.
