Summer Solstice

The first day of summer is today, June 21, 2018. Google is celebrating this year’s summer solstice with the google icon. You might wonder “What is the summer solstice”? The summer solstice has the longest daylight hours in the year and the shortest night hours – it marks the official start date of summer.

In Rochester, MN our summer solstice is a cloudy, rainy day – so will we even notice extra daylight? Instead of the first day of summer, it feels more like mid-spring with overcast skies temperatures in the mid-sixties and our yards are sopping wet with a week filled with continual rain. But there is good news – sunshine and upper 70s are predicted for tomorrow – a day with a tiny bit less sunlight but likely a brighter day overall. Maybe it will lift our spirits and help us get into the summer groove!

Until the sun comes tomorrow, what might be a summer car tip we can use today? That’s easy – wiper blades. Great vision is important while driving. Do your wiper blades leave streaks across your windshield? Do your wiper blades squeak? Make sure you’re seeing the roadways and other motorists clearly by getting new wiper blades installed today.

You might wonder if all windshield wiper blades are alike. The answer is a big fat NO! The old saying holds true: you get what you pay for. If you purchase cheap, low-quality wiper blades for your car, SUV or truck, likely you will not enjoy the quiet, better functioning, longer-lasting, higher quality wiper blades that are made better but are more expensive. Our mechanics at Babcock Auto Care would be happy to show you the difference in wiper blades and help you with a new set today – the first day of summer, filled with rain but also with the hope that sunshine will come.
