Every time I wash our black truck! I was going to shine it up and wax it last week and guess what? It rained from the smallest cloud ever on my way home from the car wash....go figure!!

Yup, it happens ALL the time! You should check the 7 day weather forecast before you wash it!

I have always believed that it is the water drying off my car that causes the rain cloud to immediately form in the atmosphere, even if it was bone dry up till then, and once my car is clean, a rainstorm WILL always happen.

In fact, I was thinking of renting out my car for areas of the USA that are in drought, as all they have to do is wash and wax and voila, instant downpour!

I could drive out to the middle of the Sahara, with zero rain predicted for 100 years. If I hand wax my car, 3 inches WILL fall in the next 24 hours. It is a fact of nature at this point!

This my friends is why on the 8th day got created "The Beater Car".

I have a black car that is my baby that sits in the garage. It comes out when its nice gets driven and enjoyed then put back away as clean as I can. The beater sits out side, gets washed when I can get to it and takes the sharp shots the nice car would have taken.

Recently I blew out my windshield on the beater... Thankfully it was not the good car.

So if your beater gets dirty that's why you own a beater. No reason to be upset!

You're supposed to wash your car? Really? Isn't that what the rain is for?

Actually, when I had a silver car nothing really showed up on it. But now that I have a red one...yuck. But I just back it out of the garage before it rains! In the three years I've had it, I let my 8 yr old nephew "wash" it once because I desperately needed the kid out of my hair while babysitting him! He used just the hose and let's just say the driveway get washed, not the car so much, LOL!

Well, I finally found something useful about my migraines! I pretty much always know when it will rain, so I can truthfully say I've never washed any car and then had it rain!

Okay...here we go. Perfect, cloudless day. Rain not expected for about 48 hours. Sun up and bright. I washed both our cars. Guess what. I finish about 11 AM. I go in for a bite to eat, and poof, look out the window and it's raining. One tiny, who knows where it came from cloud and it decides to piss on both my freshly cleaned cars. Yes, it's true. It happens.

Yeah that's cool.... but have any of you played the oh its such a nice day ill wash my car game.... followed by a why not take a drive with the T-Tops out. Followed by a rousing game of lets have sex fall asleep with the T-Tops out and wake up to it pouring rain into your open roofed car with the T-Tops in the remote garage. Yeah that was not fun at all.

Or the buy a classic Corvette...wash it, go home and REMOVE the t-tops prior to a fun filled drive. Then, once you are reasonably injured from trying to figure out sex in that car, the sky opens up and washes away all your naughty little thoughts. We drove the 79 miles home, lost our temporary license decal along the way, almost got struck by lightning a few times and bought the rack for storing the t-tops on the back of the car the next day.

I was going to say, "You win!", but then js250 came along and trumped your sorry (but amusing) tale with her's. See you two, those are the wages of SIN! And in js250's case, complete with thunder and lightening bolts, LOL! What would only top that is having gotten pregnant, too!!! Obviously, the lesson here isn't just don't have sex in the car, lol, but don't drive convertibles! I'm sorry you lost to js250's tale, but come on, the roofless, 79 mile drive in a thunder and lightening storm and losing their temp permit decal...well, that's just biblical, really! Only getting a ticket for the sex in the car and then on the way home for no decal would have topped this and that's MY luck, so good thing I don't have a convertible, hehe.
