It's getting to hot to detail more than one car at a time. High of 87 today, and I felt it. I cleaned up my moms Terrain today after being unavailable to do so for a number of months. She has hand washed it a couple of times since I was last able to get my hands on it. Props to her! I told her no automatic car washes.

Indeed. I had a black Accord as my first car, I told myself never again. Now I detail this 🤪. Happy to help family though.

Indeed it does look great.
I found that when I was in FL, washing a vehicle when it's hot, or weather forecasting a hot day is to start no later than 7am. And it's only March. In later months, I'd start even earlier. I may even do the interior the day before and then knock off the exterior the next day.

Why do people who live in Florida complain about the heat? I don't recall folks in Phoenix saying anything and it's much hotter there.

Looks good, it's 40 and raining where I am. Also allergy season has just struck...to be followed by our rainy season. New England weather is the absolute worst.

It's humidity in Florida, a totally different experience than Phoenix.

I've stood in Phoenix weather where it was 90 degrees and thought it was 60, hardly breaking a sweat. If you stand in 87 degree weather in Florida (or anywhere on the East coast), the humidity will leave you soaked and gasping for air. The air is wet and heavy. Totally different than the dry heat of Arizona.

Well then, they should complain about the humidity. LOL I hate it and I'm 1000 miles north.
