    Most parking lots look like that around here after a storm, including mine. Maybe it's worse then I'm seeing in the pics.

    Residue always looks bad when it's really cold too..... salt granuals don't photograph well IMO I tried to photograph one that I lost this season just plastered with salt by the new guy and the picturedidn't make it look 1/2 as bad as itwas.

    I can't say much...I have a lot that seeps ground water out making a big ice problem, I dropped alot there last night. I'd rather defend oversalting than undersalting.

    Few storms ago i was tired and forgot i had my spreader wide open and salted a smaller lot and ended up dumping like 3/4 yard of salt before i really noticed what happened. There was so much salt i literally plowed it all up into piles and shoveled it back into the spreader. I felt like a total noob.

    lol It was funny actually, This lot was literally right next to the salt yard i got the salt from no more then 10 minutes earlier, All the other plowers were staring at me like i was ******** while they were waiting to have their trucks loaded. My brother was in the red dodge helping to plow it into piles and couldn't even look out his window he was so embarrassed. lol
