Car washes busy because of warm weather

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Some businesses, like ski resorts, rely on snow during the winter. Others get a boost when the weather is sunny and relatively warm, like it has been lately.

The people who decided to get their car washed Sunday realized a lot of other people had the same idea. Car washes in Portland had lines dozens of cars long.

"Everybody's at the car wash today apparently," Kristin Roberts, who was getting her car cleaned at Scrub-a-Dub Carwash, said.

The drivers we talked to said these temperatures are good for a lot of reasons. With no snow expected this week, there won't be any fresh salt or sand on the roads, and you don't have to worry about below-freezing temperatures.

"It's not going to be cold tonight, so my fuel tank's not going to freeze up when I try to put gas in it, and my doors aren't going to lock up because they're soaked in water," Clifford Spike said at Classy Chassie Car Wash.
