MANDAN, ND — The first warm day here after weeks of dirty snow and salt covered roads was a boon for local carwashes, KFYR reported.

The Jan. 27 story stated that M & H Touchless Car Wash had a line into the street and some drivers waited up to half an hour to get a carwash. To avoid frozen locks, drivers here frequently wait until temperatures rise above 20 degrees to wash their cars.

Scott McQuay added in the story, "I’m going to be busy the rest of the week and it was nice and warm out. I figured it would be a good day to get it done.”
