Wash your car, summon the rain

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- You may have heard the saying, 'the best way to make it rain, is to get your car washed' and there were plenty of folks who must have been summoning the rain Wednesday.

"Usually people pull up and they're like, 'I know it's going to rain but it's dirty you know,'" Robert Stone, a car care adviser for Splish Splash Car Wash, said.

The legend is especially notorious here in Colorado where we experience a glorious spring day in the 70s and suddenly find ourselves in the low 30s the next day. That happened all over the state this week.

"Today, I was literally just standing out in the rain guiding cars because of the fact that they just want to get a car was for no real reason," Gilbert Barbosa, a car care adviser for Splish Splash Car Wash, said.

For people like Ricky Houtris, it's worth it, rain or shine. "It looks tidy, I like my vehicles, I like them to look good," he said.
