Frozen windshield - deicing with hot water

I've recently moved to western Washington from Southern California and having to scrape icy windshields is a new (and very painful experience). How risky would it be to pour hot water over the windshield rather than using a scraper. I'm afraid it would crack the glass if the water is too hot, but there must be a "safe" temperature.
