- Since Sunday, we've seen about 5 inches or more of snow and, while you were busy clearing the drive, you may have forgotten about your car. But you need to do it - and here's how! What you're about to read is tongue-in-cheek, but you absolutely should clear off all the snow from your car. It's a safety issue for you and and other drivers. This week, we've been playing dodge the snow storm as two clippers have come in to Detroit. Saturday dropped 2-3 inches and on Monday, we got another 2-3.
