    The last few nights have been below freezing but the humidity level is low ( 20%) so dry conditions at night and early mornings. Salt from previous visits is still clearly visible in parking areas on all my sites. Does anyone have a minimum humidity level for when they go out salting. (60, 70, 80% eg) It usually isn't this dry in Vancouver.

    Honestly never consider humidity. If we have frozen anything in lots we treat, if they're dry we don't. We try to keep it simple. What role does humidity really play? Especially it's low. Like in the 20-30% range?
