Its all about the timing

 
The monsoons have stopped and we now have our regular November rain. The mold is having a field day.

The 'timing' I speak of happened this morning. The sky was overcast with individual clouds looking a bit menacing but it had an over-all friendly feel to it.... So I took my chances and went out for provisions. Bank, gas station, tobacco store, local market, and then the grocery discount store. While in the grocery store it sprinkled but it was over by the time I was loading the car. (for new readers... windshield wipers don't work, still. Shut up. It makes my life exciting.)And don't think I didn't notice my good fortune. I gave thanks. (Mother Nature likes that... beings who are not cocky (sorry guys) and are grateful for small favors. Its the only leverage I pretend I have.)

No sooner had I pulled up in front of my apartment and got the silver bullet parked when it began to sprinkle. The sprinkle then turned to rain. It hasn't stopped since then.

I know, I know... but this is all I've got. I lead a very reclusive life and I like it that way.

I have a secret for you, its called RAIN-X its in a yellow bottle looks like a bottle that motor oil comes in, you can get it at walmart... Its not real cheap, BUT its a lot cheaper than new wipers...

The stuff is amazing, you literally do not have to turn your wipers on when that is applied to your windows and it lasts a long time before you have to reapply it...

15 years ago my brother was driving me back to Texas from Illinois and he put it on his windshield and it came THE WORST RAINSTORM that I had ever driven through and we could see just fine, in fact you can see better with out wipers than you can with them on when using this product...

GO TRY IT
then I can say I told you so.... (smile)
