""Workin' at the Car Wash...."

After today, this week's weather pattern will be ideal for car washing. As noted in a previous column, years ago, Benny Alford suggested that "rain mentions" on my weathercasts were deterring business at Benny's Car Wash. Occasionally, I would engage in a spirited debate concerning this issue, hoping Benny would extend a free wash. I believed that if the car is dirty it needed a wash - rain or shine. Even into early March, a car wash in Pennsylvania is a necessity. De-icing salt, on roadways, corrodes the under-carriage of a vehicle, especially when temperatures rise. Benny also insisted that a commercial car wash is better for the environment. Research indicates that much of the water at Benny's and other commercial locations are recycled, thus assisting the environment.
