Condo construction dust galore, pollen, maple flowers, maple keys soon to follow, currently those annoying little black flies that get into everything and cover the car when cleaning and using synthwax, etc. etc. etc.... remind me again why I live here? O_o

I used to go hangout at one of my friends houses just about every day for a while, and she had a bunch of these trees everywhere. Her driveway... even a large part of her street actually. I'd come back and find the car covered in these:





Sometimes when it was was windy, you could hear them pelting the car from inside the car. Really annoying...

Arrggghh, I hate those spikey balls! They are in the top three worst foliage. I remember me and my cousin throwing them at each other when we were young and one got stuck in the back of my neck. It still makes me shudder thinking about it.

Well. I gave the 'Stang a quick wash yesterday in between rain. I tried that Meguiar's quik wax and hated it. It said I could apply to the car when wet still and it made it hazy and dirty looking. Oh well, I was able to throw on the American Muscle cover I just bought and it's staying on until I have to drive it. I'll put it back on every day after work since it's my DD.

I used the computer dust off tip for the helicopter leaves, so thanks for the tip!!! Went to Staple's picked up a bottle and used it up. It worked pretty well, coulda used something a little more powerful though! Wasn't too crazy watching my paint and molding freeze briefly while using it but I'm sure it'll be fine.
