I bought Rain-X at the automotive supply store and cleaned the window with it, then sprayed the window with the hose......before the Rain-X the water didn't bead, as you can see in my first outtake.

Can't believe I got 2 ribbons in a row!!! I'm on vacation now, didn't realize I had won a ribbon until I got an e-mail from Shez.

LOL at the stamp Art gave me, Art I don't think you'll be needing that much though.

I hope you had a remote. I did this type of shot awhile ago, and I'd have to go out, spray the window, run back in and push the button. Most of the time the water was already gone! Never heard of rainx -- I'll have to tuck that piece of info away for future use. :)
