    Hey Everyone,
    Thanks for taking the time to look at my posting.

    I am looking to get some information on weather in S.E. Michigan. For estimate purposes, I am trying to get an idea of how many "events" companies typically go out and salt their accounts....this also including salting after you have finsihed plowing after a plowable event.

    The reason I am inquiring is because I have a bid that is due, and the complex wants a seasonal price for both plowing and salting. I figure to use 2 tons of salt per application, I just want to see what numbers everyone else in S.E. Michigan typically uses to to quote a job like this.

    Novi is different than here in Muskegon (lake effect) if i were you i would talk to a few of the local guys and see what there typical run season is. It varies from aera to aera depending if you tend to put down more ice melt to help with melting which in turn if there is little snowfall you dont have to plow as much.

    i would try that route!
