You guys are missing the beauty of it. Its just Mother Nature's way of saying "you missed a spot" and she's cleaning it for you. Didn't anyone know that???!!!

Don't ask, I did take my meds today.

I washed my car yesterday morning and had it parked inside the garage all last night, wake up to wet roads but by the time I left for work everything had dried up

At least I feel good knowing I kept the car clean for a full 24 hours

I try to clean my car when it looks like the rain is going to stay away for 3 or 4 days but it never works out that way.

Actually I washed my car because I was planning to work from home until Thursday

Had to run to the post office anyway so I figured I would just work out of the office for a change

Putting on some more serious miles Thurs-Friday so I will probably be giving it a quick wash on the weekend

Did the same to me, Duds. I'd actually also started polishing the hood. Thankfully the polish is oil based and beads water just as well as any wax or paint sealant.

Maybe I'll have enough sun this next weekend to finish making the car look like a mirror.

Never in the mid-west or the upper east coast.
