Don't wash your car without checking forecast...

How many times have you washed your car before a rainy day? I guess that it has happened to each of us sometime. Well, that's what I found the other day, just in front of my house... Wow.
What you see in those cars are the Elm's round fruit called samara.

¿A quién no le ha pasado nunca eso de lavar el coche antes de un día tormentoso? Esto es lo que me encontré el otro día nada más bajar de casa...
Una faena, parece nieve, pero es el fruto del Olmo, la sámara, que cayó por el peso de la lluvia.

Feliz fin de semana.

Hola Dsole, los dueños deben estar felices. En mi caso son los pajaros los q se encargan de decorar el carro pues donde vivo hay muchos arboles. Muy buena foto. HAsta pronto

This time car owners should get a fruit check, huh?

Fruit? Is it hard to remove? Does it damage the air intakes? I would not want to have this on my car if it does not come off easy.

Qué manera de empezar el día para los dueños de esos coches!

A nuisance, but it makes a great photo!!

Goodness, what a mess! We get sand that gets dropped over us - Sahara sand - it gets everywhere! Your photo shows the worst I've ever seen tho and very interesting. Great photo.

Nevertheless, the trees are magnificent. Sad to see they make the cars so dirty.

I always wash just before the rain. And then I take the bus… ;)

Abraham (and everybody), I don't think it damages any thing... when it gets dry it easy to remove! :) But it's such a mess anyway!

Per, usually I don't wash my car...

Fernando, eso de los pájaros me es bastante familiar... prefiero las sámaras de los olmos a las cagadas de las palomas!

buen finde! ;)

Oy! What a (healthy!) mess...

Wow! That's a lot of fruits on the cars. Are they sticky? I bet it's hard to wash them off.

That is funny because I just washed my car today. It seems like everytime I wash my car it rains. Hope it is a sunny this weekend for all of us!

Timing was perfect. The fruit is nearly ready to set. Great photo.

Great photo. Looks like all the cars are covered with gold.

Oh all the times I wash my car and i get rain the next day I always tell myself... that that was the last day i washed my car ..... but it never happens as a dirty car is pretty annoying

I never wash my car, I get my husband to do it, but it always rains when I wash the louvres of my house. Great pic, though at first I thought it was bird droppings! Lucky it's not!!!

Washing cars in Sydney, with water restrictions, is too much of a pain. Can only use a bucket and sponge, no hose. We occasionally take it to a car wash! Great photo, dsole!

Hah! I'm glad my car is not there. Very nice photo Dsole. Something that you do not see everyday:)

ouch!

pitiful car owners having to clean up such a mess!

I thought it was cherry-blossom at first. Very funny -- it is at times like these I do not regret no longer having a car.

There's a small town in the south of France, can't remember the name, where the main street is bordered by beautiful trees which offer a welcome shade to parked cars in summer. But the incredible number of birds who live in the trees are sure to cover you car with shit in no time. Awful!

wow dssole - you have the kewlest blog pics - a skill for the dramatic shots- this is crazy stunning - first, the obvious mess on the cars and who knows what the owners will need to do to clean it up, but also jus looking at the surroundings, you live in a beautiful neighborhood!!! The rows of trees look super nice
