This ALWAYS happened when my Dad washed his car. He washed his car one time when we were living in the south of England during a 5 week drout. It had not rained in all that time. He hadn’t been able to wash his car as there was a hopepipe ban and we could only use limited amounts of water. His car was filthy so he took a bucket of water and went out to clean it as best he could. About half an hour after he had finished we were all in the living room and we heard a tapping on the window. We looked out and saw huge spots of rain coming down. Seconds later it was pouring with rain, the first rain in weeks. The look on Dad’s face was priceless. My brother reckoned Dad should go washing cars in drout stricken Ethopia.
