Today's afternoon forcast called for snow, to freezing rain, to showers. Well I decided to run the trucks with pure salt, pretty expensive decision. For me to send out my spreader fleet full of pure salt, is pretty expensive. I figured if i used a sand/salt mix, the sand would just be iced over again in a few hours. I tried pure salt pre-wet with mag cloride, on all that were open on sunday, no need to apply another application. However i treated the places that were closed with 50/50 pre wet with mag cloride, just like the pure salt. Well I just checked the lots, and I didn't need to revisit them, which was good. At the same time, the rain isn't freezing anymore. So I am not sure what my results would have been If I had used 50/50 on everything. I do know the salt cut into my profits a little. Only hey at least I can say I tried something different. Sidewalk guys used a melting agent. Geoff.
