My car is under attack from the pine trees that hang over the driveway. Every morning the windshield is a mess of sticky globs of pine goo, impossible to remove without solvents and Red Devil scrapers! Pine and hemlock needles sift down snd stick to the goo or slide into the crevices around the hood. So I've made a car cover out of a tarp and duct tape and two bungees. Not my favorite time of year.
