It's hard to describe to those that aren't familiar with living in a climate with four unique seasons but around these parts, Spring is still for cleaning.
We clean up almost everything to do with four months of Winter and at an average temperature of -18C, (about 0 Fahrenheit) that can mean a lot of work.
There's inside cleaning to be done like furnace vents, the mudroom floor and of course everyones favourite, the windows. But there's also outside cleaning that's needed. That side of the windows will need to be done, all the crap that's collected in the yard needs to be picked up or raked away and once you start doing that one, you'll start to realize what may be hiding all over your vehicles.
Up here for those four months you see, the only defence against old man Winter for our roads is tons and tons of Salt & Sand. Products that once you combine them with the melted snow and slush, become one of the best corrosives known to steel.
If the car is going to be preserved, that can only mean one thing!

Maybe you don't think you need to or maybe, you just don't see the value in spending those extra few bucks. Of course, that's your decision.
But in my case I totally think it's worth it, since I drive a
Every weekend during the Spring and Summer, I see those kids busting their

Of course, it doesn't hurt that they're also exceptionally good at

Oh and did I mention that this is all
Oh sorry, I must have forgot that part.
Anywho.... may I recommend that you start to think about getting your
in gear and helping out one charity or another.
They say that charity begins at home and in my eyes, that's so true!
Well, that's it for me.
It's time to head back down to

Until next time kiddies,
