PreFlight parking over blizzard

I'm about to return home to a car buried under 2 feet of snow at PreFlight Logan - has anybody encountered this before? Will they help dig you out? I'm in a business suit and dress shoes, not exactly show shoveling attire.

They may help you, but for having mainly Bostonian clientele, they probably expect you to DIY.

Well, tooting my own horn, I have posted before why I am avoiding PreFlight at BOS:

I've dug my car out there, though not from two feet of the damn stuff. No assistance. I don't think they're staffed for that, though they might do a favor for a 90-year-old in a wheelchair.

The good news is that, wherever you drop the snow, it's their problem - not yours.

Thumbs up

When I arrived, my car, and every car in the lot was 100% snow free. I have no idea how they accomplished this, but I was amazed. How did they clear that much snow off thousands of cars?

You don't want to know

Seriously, I don't know how, but they probably did that because if there was another big storm before you picked up the car, a car buried in snow COULD easily be mistaken as just a pile of snow and be ruined by snow removal equipment. Ounce of prevention worth a pound of cure, or something like that.
