I rent in an urban area, so I don't own a shovel - weather almost never requires! But the East Coast got hit with an unusual storm, and my car is snowed in.
Is there a way to dig out my car without damaging it short of buying a shovel, to be used only once?
Ideas that come to mind: rent a shovel, using some kind of sharing network, ask a neighbor, pour hot water. I have called a few hardware stores (none rent) , can't find any share economy sites for this, and CL didn't have anything listed. Suggestions? Other info: hard snow, heavy, about a foot deep, ambient temp is ~ 40 F. Thanks!
