The "Weather Market"

When most people think of a "weather market" they think of commodities such as livestock and grains.  Of course for you to think of such things you most likely have an agricultural background.  When I was on the farm, we would take our hogs to market during a blizzard because no one else was and the prize was up.  A "Weather Market".

The same holds true for the automotive business.  But in a different way.  As things become worn on your vehicle, they hold together quite well as long as the weather stays fairly constant.  But when when a storm comes in and the weather changes, it seems to aggravate the worn stuff and all of a sudden your vehicle is not running the way it should, or you have an antifreeze leak, or even a belt breaks.

Believe it or not, that is the "weather market" for the automotive repair industry.  I guess you could say, "When it rains, it pours"  repairs?
