Lately in the Shoals, we’ve had drought conditions, and we’ve been asked to conserve water. Yesterday, we got some much needed rain…
When I got off work, I stopped by my parent’s house for a few minutes. They have three vehicles, two of which are usually under shelter, yesterday all three were out in the driveway. I didn’t bother to ask why the cars weren’t parked where they usually were….I assumed I they must be cleaning out the carport.
This morning, I got the rest of the story.
My sister went to visit my parents a few hours before me, and my sweet little mother was outside, while it was still sprinkling, wiping down her car. Gina asked Mom what she was doing…and as she’s standing there in the sprinkles, she says, “I’m drying my car.” Gina suggested that she simply pull her car under the carport. Mom then explained that she was cleaning her car in the rain because we’d been told to conserve water, and she had been unable to wash her car.
Some just do it better than others…
