The TV weather folks call it “the warm before the storm.” We usually get some nice warm winds from the south as a low pressure moves into the area bringing the storm. These winds stir up the dust, so that when the storm does make it in, it leaves a nice coating of dirt on everything. Makes the car look like crap. Which bugs me to no end, because I hate it when my cars are dirty. Well, except when it’s that “I’ve just been 4 wheeling in the mud” dirt on the car. In that case, I’m usually trying to see how much mud I can get in the most unlikely places.
Anyway, that’s why I have my own lane at the car wash right around the corner.
