This is handy when you park your car in snowy areas. It's when you pull the windshield wipers of your car off of the windshield and leave them up. This prevents snow/ice build-up on the wipers while you're at work and makes cleaning your car easier. Named for Saint Francis University in Loretto, PA, where it snows from October to April.
Every car in the lot is giving the St. Francis Salute!
