Bad luck with car washes?

Have you ever noticed as soon as you wash your car the sky just opens up? Not only did it rain after my trip to the wash it hailed!

Also there was a brand new red Saleen S281 Mustang at the wash when I went, talk about a nice looking car!

meh, it only happens when to me when i've just washed, clayed, polished, sealed, waxed, washed again, detail waxed, and buffed to black glass; and when i've dusted, vaccuumed, shampooed, and detailed the interior. Then it starts pouring rain, or a bird shits on it, or Molly jumps inside (our insane YELLOW lab) and starts rolling around in the interior.

Washed, waxed, and cleaned the interior of my car 2 days ago and it rained that night...later in the evening I didn't crank it over enough and it flooded while these frickin smokin' girls were outside down the street, took me 2 retrys to get it started. It was a shitty day.
