    This winter, my Tesla will be parked outdoors at work and I will need to deal with snow removal when it snow during work hours.

    1) Does anybody have a recommendation on a good, safe brush?

    2) Does anybody have a view on those windshield snow covers?

    3) Anything else?

    Thanks much,

    First of all, make sure you have a good last step product on your car like a durable sealant or a hydrophobic coating (Gtechniq, 22PLE, opticoat, etc.) this will help things slide off when there is a layer of water developing.

    Consider a window cover.

    Preheat the car well in advance of use to help.

    Try and keep your car clean so you don't push around sand and grime when you push the snow off. Also, most days, preheating is all you need for the windows and roof. You will only need to brush the frunk and trunk.
