    Wow, woke up at 5am to nothing, went back to bed and got up at 7:30 to see a dusting to maybe 1/2" on the ground in a few spots. Scrambled a bit but got out and only did a few places with bad hills. Rest of the people will be fine

    Magic salt does miracles.Thumbs Up lay it down before the snow squall, coming from NWCT at 5am, went bk 8am everything was down to asphalt.
    A little test to what to come, everything is line up for weekend.something to watch. it a monster.

    We only had a half inch here. The TV news said 2" and had me checking places for no reason. I was one of the only trucks out without a plow. I seen a lot of lots plowed and some were untouched. I salted my lots/walks at 1am and by the ride home everything was black top.

    This was a very random one...Some places got a dusting, some got none, some down the road got an 1"...I didnt get anything and usually I do, it was so cold in my spots the little snow just blew off the pavement itself...

    However whats on tap for this weekend could be very nice, finally....I mean all of the models are showing it like every single one... JMA, ECMWF, NAVGEM, GFS, NAM, Canadian GEM etc. all have it

    Crazy day! Went out and salted for 3 hrs before a scheduled day of oil tank removal .Got done and heading to shop to meet my friends crew to load up bobcat and excavator.That was a crazy snow squall,zero visibility!!.Had to cancel job,call in 2 sidewalk guys and "borrow a load of treated salt from another contractor(I was all out) Glad the sun came out,it burned it off in a couple hours.Could have snuck a plowing in but all the other trucks were on jobs by then.I learned lesson,keep 20 tons on hand at all times.aclawn is correct,that magic salt is awesome.
