    I haven't seen actual prices yet but I talked with my supplier last week and he is keeping his price the same as last year.

    Were are you going for salt?

    I was getting it from Area supply in Mokena. They are a little higher but I can also call them at 2:00AM and pick up more if I ever got jambed up.

    Price was 223.00 per pallet regular rock salt.

    I was paying $2.75 per bag last year, full semi-loads. Hell, i pre-ordered all mine last year...well needless to say, I am still sitting on 3 semis. UGH!!!
