Raining mud

All over Tucson are car washes. I have always wondered how they kept busy when the cars stay so clean.

Yesterday, I found out. After a day of high winds, which stirred up so much dust that there were accidents, one fatal, due to dust storms, the rain poured down. Ah, I thought, this will wash away all the mess and clean everything up.

Nope. The dust came down with the rain as mud, and the cars were covered in it this morning. Probably a million cars in Tucson need washing. It was an economic stimulus package for the car washes.
