    I was told today by are DPW forman salt has been limited to 100 tons per day for the towns and max of 15 tons per day for private contractors. I will find out wed morning as for i have no salt or sand mix left after plowing the last 3 days. We had 5 events in the last 8 days! So everybody needs product salt piles are still very large at the terminal so time will tell. I hope to get 40 ton wed!

    I saw a couple state dot trucks spreading sand again instead of just salt i thought that was very odd.

    I saw state truck spreading a mix this weekend also. Some towns that were using salt only have gone back to a mix also. Money has become very tight around here this is the most snow we have had in the last 5 years. Towns are running way over budget for snow. So we will see what happens but i plan on getting as much as i can the way things are going we will need it.
