Crap all over windshield—normal for winter driving?

Grew up on U.S. west coast and rarely had an opportunity to drive in snow. Got a chance yesterday driving my (new) VW Alltrack for over an hour on the NYS Thruway through 2 inches fine, driving snow. But wipers were useless, even with the wiper fluid assisting. 30 seconds later, big dirt streaks in wide arcs on the glass. Is this normal? To be unable to get the windshield to stay clear? I couldn’t leave the wipers on; the flakes were too tiny and dry. Do I have to start using that weird windshield “shield”™ stuff?
