rainy monday morning with rain-x on my windshield

Mondays are never a fun time. Going back to work after some amazing weekend or your child’s 3rd birthday is usually a downer. Could have done without this this morning:

On the brighter side, though, I did get a new windshield (that hasn’t leaked) and I coated it with Rain-X. As you can see in the video… worth it! Most of the way to work this morning I didn’t have to have my wipers on due to that stuff. I also used Fog-X on the inside of my windshield. So why am I blabbing about driving to work on a Monday, in the rain, with Rain-X on my newly replaced windshield? I guess it’s because you should make the most of any situation you are in with the tools you have.

PS – I feel like the title of the video “Driving to work in the rain with rain-x on my windshield” is like the title of the Primitive Radio Gods’ song “Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money in My Hand”.
