Warm temperatures drive people to the car wash this holiday
COLUMBIA – Warmer than usual temperatures on Monday brought people out of their homes and to the car wash.
Hundreds of cars drove to the Tiger Express Car Wash to get their cars cleaned before the holidays.
People wore long sleeves and light jackets, but no coats.
New Bloomfield resident, Jennifer Crane, said she enjoyed that it was not freezing outside.
“It was nice. Not too hot - not too cold - made it comfortable,” said Crane.
Crane said her car was covered in grime so she needed a car wash. And since it was warm she took advantage of the weather.
Marvin Newcom lives in Columbia and comes to the Tiger Express Car Wash often and said he waited in line for 20 minutes to get his car washed. He said while he is a shorts and t-shirt guy himself, he doesn’t want to feel like he’s in Florida during the holiday season.
“It’s too warm for this time of year,” he said. “Cold and white. That’s the way it was all the time I was growing up,” said Newcom.
Tuesday and Thursday are also expected to be unseasonably warm, with highs reaching into the 60s.
