    We had one similar to that last year & I had to salt my way to my sons daycare since I slid past the entrance both ways. There is no worse feeling that a person can have of that sliding on ice.

    I second that. Losing control on ice like that and seeing something your gonna hit coming at you is gut wrenching.

    Hard to believe you guys don't just stay home for that sort of thing... Servicing a salting contract would be one thing, but daycare? You wouldn't catch my kid going anywhere in that sort of ridiculousness.

    Yeah thats for sure. I was doing 15mph on route 422 and I was sliding around even with studded tires. I was one of 4 people I saw driving on 422. All the rest were pulled over, wrecked, or in a ditch. I had to salt a hill on a public secondary road just to make it up. It was nuts to say least.

    That was some nasty ice we had here. It came in around 7:00am. I waited until 10:30am before I went out to salt. I wasn't going to smash up my truck. There was a 22 year old girl who died here because of that ice.

    Last year we had one of those. I ran up the rd and grabbed my kid out of school on the way to salt a property. Most buses got kids home at 11:30pm that night.
