A Little Ironic.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I live in the northeast and it had been frigid for the last several days. Before that there was alternating snow and heavy rains and my car is really filthy. I have been trying to get it washed for almost a week and I haven't been able to find a place that was open. I stopped at my car place and there wasn't anyone available to do it. So I called later and with luck they will do it tomorrow.

The irony is that when the weather and season are the toughest, the ability to get your car cleaned is the most difficult. I tried cleaning it myself but it is just too cold and between the smears and the frost it is impossible. I know, it is another first world problem. Have a good day.

I keep hoping and wishing the rain will just clean off my car but it doesn't seem to work that way!

I have a belief that a freshly cleaned car is a magnet for bad weather and muddy roadways. . .If that's any comfort!  I've also been known to drive my car out of the garage and park it on my driveway during a rainstorm to help knock some of the dust off!

Hi Myrl. my car is beyond dirty. I have left it out in the rain and it didn't matter. Now that it is frigid I need to be able to see so i would gladly pay for a wash. TY   Sheila

Hello Sheila - I imagine this is an issue -- one that doesn't confront us in Southern California but an important one nonetheless.

Morning Sheila.

With the crazy weather we've experienced lately, no one is getting their vehicle cleaned.  Within the first mile, it would be as dirty as it was before one had it cleaned.

You're absolutely correct - keeping the car clean in the winter is almost impossible.

As you say a first world problem. But it is nice to get into a clean car. Which reminds me I need to vacuum my car.

More snow predicted this weekend. I'm not looking forward to it. We will be staying inside since we are fortunate not to have plans.
