If you like a clean car or truck, the next couple of months is likely your least favorite time of the year. We are now two months past the winter solstice and the sun angle is now high enough, that no matter the air temperature, the sun will warm up the roads enough to melt snow on the edges of the streets and create puddles of dirty water. This splashes around and of course the spray throws dirty, often salty water on your vehicle. Until the snow is all gone, this will be an almost daily problem. The other negative is the melt / freeze process creates slippery roads after sunset and also creates perhaps the biggest problem of all: potholes.
