Here's why your car was so dirty after the rain Monday.

Basically, the severe storm system that rolled through our area Monday came with some baggage.  Mud.  The storm picked up dirt from the air in Texas and brought it through the Midwest.  Head to the link for the full story and take a look at the images below.
