THE POLAR VORTEX — Having to remove several inches of snow from your car before you head to work or leave to get errands done is one of the worst parts of winter.
But this dad has figured out a way to get the task done quickly, efficiently and most importantly, in a fun way.
The video was captured earlier this month in Monclova, Ohio, after a snowstorm. The person who submitted the video wrote that their husband and son went out to play in the snow. The person asked their husband to clean off their cars while he was already outside, and that's how they came up with this unusual method of snow removal.
In the video, the dad places his son (who is totally bundled up in snow clothes) on top of the car and slides him down the back window, pushing all the snow covering the window onto the ground. The dad then picks the kid up, lugs him around to the other side and the duo repeat the steps until the car is driveable and the snow is removed.
Now, this personally seems like a terrible idea to me as the thought of being covered in snow sounds about as appealing as sticking my hand in a fire. When I realized what was happening in the video, I was worried the kid would be cold or wouldn't enjoy it. But the best part of the video is that this kid is absolutely loving it.
If you turn the sound on when you watch, you can hear the kid laughing and whooping. His dad is the coolest, and he just took his snow playing time to a whole new level.
The kid's laughter, and the fun of watching this father and son bond, is what makes this video great. Enjoy it, and stay warm.
