    My Mom grew up near the tip of the mitten, and she sometimes had snow on her birthday, May 30. That was before global warming was a thing, so I don’t know what the odds are of that today.

    I have seen snow in May here in the Chicago area. Snow tires are still on my cars.

    Our house still has the Madona-bra hose bib covers on… We got down to freezing just last week, according to the weather folk, though our thermometer only got down to 34º F.

    How about just move it from behind the driver’s seat to the trunk?

    March played an April Fools joke on us. April 1 brought just enough snow to cover the truck and garden table. Latest I’ve seen in northeast Tennessee.

    I had to brush snow off of my car yesterday :/ Freezing temperatures through all next week. We have a special word for a cold spell around Easter here in Iceland.

    We had the April Fool’s snow as well. My brush is still behind the seat, not bothering anyone. It can stay for another week or so.

    Never understood why people take it OUT of the car.. Just put it in the trunk. I lived in CA for 12 years, always had one in the trunk (born and raised in MI.. I know better), and it came in handy one day when I was working near the bay area and there was frost on the car windows in the morning. Probably the only time in 12 years I needed it.. but I was the only one driving on the freeway for a while with clear windows. Ya just never know.

    I thought this cartoon was set in Michigan. Surely they haven’t escaped the chance of snow out there by early April.

    In Illinois, we got 3 feet of snow in May 197? (I think 4). That is why I don’t live there any more.

    I often commute from suburban Grand Rapids to Holland, Michigan, for my job and, traditionally, the snow brush and an extra sweatshirt remain in my vehicle until the Fourth of July, at which time I’m forced to remove them to make space for picnic and beach “goodies” for that very same holiday.

    Here in Louisville, we got snow on Derby Day last year! Not a lot, just a dusting – but enough to need to clear it off. (That’s the first Saturday in May…)

    My wife is convinced that when the first snow falls in fall / winter, she’ll be in a hurry to get to school and won’t have time to look for the brush in the garage. On that possibility, she insists that it remain in the car year-round. I don’t argue with her.

    When I lived in Michigan the brush never left the car. Just slipped it under the seat and left it till needed. Never had to worry about where it was or when I would need it.

    If he doesn’t like to take chances at all, why is he taking it out in April? I wait until May, at least.

    Snow brush and snow shovels stay out until at least mid-May here. The year we got married it snowed 27 inches on my wife’s birthday… June 13th.

    In Canada, that would be unbridled optimism. I often don’t swap out my snow tires until the May 24 holiday weekend.

    When I lived in Milwaukee, my kindergarten class was taught that a SNOW brush was only strong enough to move sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen and tungsten and that for real snow we needed snow shovels.

    The Easter Eel deceived us.

    I still have my snow brush in the car & my snow shovel accessible in the garage.

    Some of the worst winter storms I’ve ever seen have hit in March & April.

    I leave my frost/ice scraper in the car year round so I can find it under the seat. The brush I put in storage.

    Where I came from had two feet of snow this Easter weekend. Where I live now got a foot of snow in February, as it tends to do every five years or so. And they wonder why I don’t move back.

    At first I thought Frazz was asking why he would remove the snow brush so early. Her response makes me think it was supposed to be why would he remove it so late. The very region specific humor in this comic can make it hard to understand sometimes.

    I leave it in the car year round so I know where it is next winter. Same with the ice scrapers.

    Frazz, you live in Michigan. You should know better! There was snow at the Detroit home opener this year, and as a native Ohioan transplanted to Michigan I well remember some impressive April snows.
