Another Sure Sign of Midwestern Insanity

I went yesterday to fill up my car's gas tank (always full during cold cold weather) and add a bottle of Heet to make sure it will start when needed. And it has been cold cold's 20 right now, which is as warm as it has been in days. Well, I am sitting at the pump, trying to get my gas tank open, as it has frozen shut and what do I see? A line of eight cars waiting to get into the car wash. The car wash! It is below freezing! They must all have heated garages at home.

You must have been at the Citgo in Lake Forest. If you had a land yacht, you'd have Hispanic men wash it in sub-zero temperatures, too.
