Wash then Snow then Wash then Snow

Question

Ok, 

 I know it's winter time and this is the time you must let go a little. BUT I have a huge hard time about doing so. I come home on Friday night, foam cannon and do a very nice exterior wash, dry, windows and vacuum. Then by Sunday it rains. Then by Wednesday it snows. I can't win. I actually leave my truck in the garage and drive my wive's Jeep when I have to run around. But I'll have to go back to work Thursday and then my baby will be all dirty again. 

 I just want a week or 2 I can keeper clean. Thats all I want.😞

If you stop washing it, it will stop raining and snowing.  Hopefully, the truck is in a clean state so don't have to worry about.

It has been the same thing in South Carolina, minus the snow part.  It seems that every time a wash a vehicle we get 2 or 3 days of rain.  This last weekend I decided to do my daughters Range Rover, I managed to get it washed between showers and then put it in the garage to finish it, where it remained for two days.

 

The worst part is that I just watched the news and it shows that we're going to have rain for 6 of the next 7 days - believe me, I understand your frustration completely.

We've been having snow, then ice, today 8", and now it's freezing rain.  Can't even get a decent day to wash anything.  I was car shopping over the weekend and was considering a black XTS.  Till I saw another black car pull in the lot looking like crap.  Black is just too much work. I'm going to keep looking.

Black is not a color.. its a commitment.. especially in winter

I really do understand and I'm sure this picture will help you all understand why I moved from upstate NY almost 20 years ago to South Carolina.

Definitely feel you on this one!  This time of year it's an uphill battle for sure.  My black Silverado shows everything and then I had to go and put wheels with some offset and bigger more aggressive tires on it 🤦🏻‍♂️   Looks great after I wash it and then I hit a puddle and there's a spray down the side of it 😂.  Oh well, there's always a give and take!
