CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

People all over the Chicago area enjoyed a short break from winter on Monday, ahead of another blast of snow and cold Tuesday and Wednesday.

The busiest place this snowy winter has been the local car wash. River West Hand Car Wash owner Bruce Kohn said winter is always a busy time for his business, but the potential for salt damage during this severe weather season has many customers coming in each time Chicago gets a break from the snow.

With several inches expected overnight and a glorious 50s on Monday, Kohn said he was able to send many of his customers home with sparkling vehicles. But he said it's a good idea for drivers to bring their vehicles in again after road crews lay down the salt. Kohn said once body damage from the strong snow- and ice-melting mixture crews are using this season sets in, it can be very costly to fix.
