    Salt with the storm, then plow then salt. Best method if you can get the client to go for it. If you apply your de-iecrs just as the precipitation is just starting to accumulate, that the best time. Unless your using liquid deicer, then you have more of a lead way.

    We use staright salt down to -12 celsius and after that we use a salt /sand mix. We usually try to salt as storm is starting to help keep from packing down and icing over and usually sand after. However changes as conditions do..
