    If you get the chance to watch Modern Marvels tonight on the History Channel the topic is Salt. I caught the episode a couple nights ago and it was great.

    Tune in if you have the chance...

    I saw it a few nights ago also. Pretty neat. I liked when the guy blew up the beakers in the lab

    It was kind of interesting to see how the solar salt was made. That seems like a lot of work/time. WOW.

    One other thing. Did you notice they "snow plow professional" say the correct application rate was 250 pounds per acre? First of all the amount they showed them spreading was WAY more than that, and second I have found 750 pounds per acre does the trick. Anyone agree?

    I average about 600 lbs per acre, unless I am trying to melt some snow off as well, then I maight bump it up to closer to the 750 an acre.

    Is there a way you can calabrate accuarately what you are putting down, or are you guys going back and actually figurng out how many acres you did and dividing the material into that?
