The line up at the carwash yesterday.
The cars on the right were backing out after
a good cleaning.
Our roads are salted and sanded in winter as we have a lot of snow and freezing temperatures.
It's the only way to keep it safe for drivers.
Of course, when the roads are wet, all this salty brine coats the vehicles as you can see on the car in the left of the above photo. Not good for the metal or paint!
We decided to take our car to the carwash yesterday to give it a cleaning.

I know. It seems pointless when you go back on the streets again. But, one has to pick a day when the streets and roads are fairly dry. And then you try to avoid any water on the road on your way home! Sound pointless? Probably is. But, it makes you feel good to drive a 'clean' car for a few minutes or miles. And it's much better than rubbing against the dirty car and getting one's clothes covered in grey dirt. :)
Do you wash your car in winter?
Do you have salt and sand applied to your streets and roads?
The roads are wet today as it's foggy and the temperature is going up to +6 celsius.
The car will be dirty again.
