Their goal is to better communicate the threat and the timing of the significant impacts that accompany these events. The fact is, a storm with a name is easier to follow, which […]

I have a process. Maybe even a little OCD. I don’t mind getting the Jeep dirty but it doesn’t stay that way long. I prefer to hand wash the Jeep. Meguiar’s Professional car care products have taken good care of my vehicles over the years. One of these days I’ll spell out my process. For […]
