    Yeah, but do they still work after consuming the contents ? :confused:


    A better idea would be to have each property owner put out fresh baked cookies at the entrance to each property. If / when you get there, they're not steaming anymore, then it's time to salt the freshly plowed drive or lot...


    Works for me, as the cookies would have to be replaced after each visit..

    LOL or just lick the pole. If you freeze to the poll then you have a freezing issue. :laughing: I mean why waste a good beer. :D

    We have had those ice indicators in our area for several years. But, only on bridges and over passes. Haven't seen them anywhere else. I figured it was because the Colorado River runs through town, and we get a lot of fog and dew in the mornings. And when it is cold enough, the roads can be dry, but the bridges can be pretty slick.

    Maybe the property owners get a a discount on insurance for having them. Maybe it is a way to try and lower liability. Maybe in court if someone has an accident they can say didn't you see all the ice/freeze warnings.
