    chuckers -

    The other question is....do you use bulk or bagged salt?

    I'm all ready. Gassed up and loaded with Bagged Salt. I actually have enough bagged salt for 4 events. With the way we have been getting freezing rain and crap, I am actually ready to get more salt.

    Let it snow!!!

    Finally some snow here!!This month has been a drought, both weatherwise and moneywise!To the question of ordering salt if you get it bulk I would not. Just finish the tyear with bags. Also wondering if you guys have any ideas on a solution to spray on my new Bobcat to stop it from rusting. I traded my 2002 S185 Bobcat two days ago and the only bad thing about it was that it was getting rusty inside and out from all the salt it encounters!BAH!Let IT SNOW!! :redbounce

    Ok, how do you stay awake when Tom Skiling talks???? I use him as a sleep aid - with in seconds I'm out cold. I usually take chanel 5 and 7 as general rules of thumb, then look at the radar myself. It usually helps to cut the hype a tad.

    We use bulk and baged. Baged for the sidewalks easier to drop a few bags for the sidewalk guys. Then for the spreaders in the trucks we use bulk. We are also located in will and kankakee county...
