What is the easiest way to clean hard snow off your windshield in the morning?

The easiest way? Don't let it accumulate in the first place. Move somewhere warmer! Ok, totally joking. Obviously moving is not easy (but it sure would eliminate the ice and snow on your windshield!).

Use a snow cover when you park your car. It's not like you don't generally know snow or ice is coming. You know you live in a winter weather area and that it's winter.Overdrive/Windshield cover (I'm not endorsing this product, simply using it as an example)Assuming you don't have one of these or didn't use it for whatever reason, then run the vehicle on defrost for a bit while you wait inside as others have suggested. Once the car has had a few minutes to warm up and melt the lower layer of ice and/or snow, simply brush it or scrape it off.Apparently, this is the lazy, stupid American answer but I fail to see any other "easy" answers from other countries here. Sure, there are other ways but that is not what the question is asking.

When I lived placed where winter weather was a concern, I didn't do any of these things. I simply kept a heavy-duty scraper around and powered through whatever was there until it was gone enough I could see and then allowed the rest to melt naturally as I drove around. Not the safest method but it sure warmed me up while I was doing it.
