    Special kinda of mess here after all the rain, interlock walks are a sheet of ice anything gravel is so slippery you can't even back up with the sander running. I would rather a foot of snow than this mess, not much we could do it was raining so hard here it just washed the salt off.

    Was a little strange here too. Guys are just wrapping up now - few icey spots out there.

    We ended up with less than an inch before the rain hit. Went to the St. Catharines yard - now dubbed the tropics. Nothing there...

    We got close to 10cm before it switched to rain and man did it rain most of the night. Everything is a sheet of ice here this morning gravel roads are almost un drivable, schools are all closed again and they are calling for more freezing rain tomorrow. Looks like I'm out for LO tomorrow here fun whoever makes it.

    It was bad timing here, enough for a salt run before places opened then about 10-15 cm before noon then the switch to rain made it heavyAF.
    Another quick salt at 5-7 pm and a new salt this morning.
    Kept it complaint free, answering some extra sands today for rural properties that are wicked fun and profitable.

    Does wicked fun count when the 6120 is sliding sideways for fifteen feet toward a parked car and there is nothing you can do but hope like hell it stops.

    Rain fall warning for us now, yesh I thought we were supposed to get a rough winter, half of its over already. Looks like anything north of Toronto is but the banana belt will keep its name for a bit yet I guess.

    We've actually had a pretty good winter in Mississauga, Brampton, Toronto area. Dec was probably our biggest month ever for salt.

    That's what I felt like sliding to the creek at my shop. I backed around this morning as everything was a skating rink.
