Look's like I'll get out about 3 or so. Just a half dozen res., so no real money out of this one. good luck if you head out, it's slippery out there.

Hey Tim,
Sorry to hear you got rained out. We got about 2 inches of heavy wet snow in Kulpsville and about an inch in Ft. Washington. We plowed and salted. Crews in Holland and Philly were rained out.

SW Coastal Connecticut here...

As soon as the rain stopped around midnight, I went and salted the hospital.

Just in case, the temp dropped. Didn't want a skating rink here this a.m. ;)

Started around 8:00 pm with 3 trucks and salted until 1:30 am. I went back out at 4:30 solo to do quality control and touch ups on the high liability accounts. Had a shipment of bulk salt come in the afternoon, talk about perfect timing! Hope everyone was safe. Most applications were straight rock salt with the sidewalks getting calcium chloride flake. It wasn't snowbut we'll take what we can get.

Salted Mon. Night, and Tues. Morning. Enough to use up credit and knock off the cobwebs...lol.

My spreader that I mounted on the quad is a Buyers Truck spreader, 55 gallons, made a mount from a reese hitch. Works pretty well.
