    What are your thoughts on a salt run Friday night in to Saturday? Looks like the low is down to 24 Friday night with a high of 24 Saturday.

    As far as salting on Friday we are going to salt everything that is open that night. All other sites that are open Saturday will get salted 5-6am Saturday morning. All other sites will be done at Property management request which I will email all of them today telling them that is it highly recommended.

    I would contact all people in charge of this today as most will be off tomorrow.

    I would imagine that remaining sites will be serviced Sunday night or Monday morning.

    As of now, I'm thinking its a good bet. Lots of standing water already. With Friday's rain and a big drop in temps Saturday morning, we could have a flash freeze. Better than nothing!

    I was wondering about freezing myself. Most of my accounts are closed so I don't think I'll need to go out this weekend. Doesn't look like any snow for a few days, I hop this January is not like last year!

    I think you may be right, snow is melting fast and the next week looks to warm for snow
