Lynn Alan Snodderly works late and gets home to Dundalk around 1 a.m. For reasons known only to him, that feels like a good time to clean his windshield. "Cleaning is easy," he says, "but I have a very hard time drying the windshield. Why? Is it humidity ... in the early mornings?" Bingo! As the air cools overnight, it's less able to hold moisture.
