Well, you're lucky I suppose that you rarely see rain in your area. We get 4 seasons here and we've had rain/sun ever other day. Annoying.

Cars look good. cheers

At least you're in a warm & sunny place. It's still cold & bleh here. All the rain has taken care of washing my cars, though smile

High 70's at least this week. Light breeze, esp in evening. Lotta walkers, joggers and bikers.
One gal offered to help; she musta felt sorry for me.

Warshing? Hah, you sound like somebody from around here!

Its been cold and raining here so naturally the GTI is a mess from the tractors bringing mud onto the roads. Plan to clean it up tomorrow. The Tacoma is also somewhat muddy from a little 4wd test last weekend. That and a tractor hauling a manure spreader decided to christen the whole front with poo...

What's that beautiful red tree in the background to the left in the 3rd picture? Is it a maple?

It's easy around here, you just sit in your car as it goes through the car wash. It's a pain to wax them though.

Your cars look great! Mine are currently covered in dried on water spotted dirt and dust from mowing / rain. I used to enjoy washing cars, now it is more a chore. Still try to get around to doing it every 2 weeks at most. OCD stinks.

With 100 degree days soon to arrive here, mine will visit the car wash. I will sit in an air conditioned room and wait for them to call me when finished.

Ding ding ding! Japanese Maples don't really like as much sun as as we get, gotta keep 'em watered.

I will try and paste more, but my cell phone makes the pics too large.
