We have even less dense precipitation than yesterday, maybe 1/4" of accumulation.
Pusher was out at HD when I went by this morning.
I'm gonna go with,they are out of salt.
But the temps don't warrant salt. Although I can see there is a potential for the driven on precipitation to get slick.
I guess that's what zero tolerance means.
Although they have never returned to plow lanes during the day in the last 2 years.
We had a squall come through yesterday.
It started raining, pouring us a better word.
About 9:30 am it turned to the biggest,wettest flakes, the roads were covered in 2" of slush in about 20 minutes.
Visibility was less than 1/4 mile.
On my way out to the body shop the highway was closed. MnDOT guy told me I could go through but had to turn north before the next town.
Turns out there was a fatality mva out there.
By 1:30 it stopped snowing and by 3 the roads were clear.
