Lol...gotta get the eyes recalibrated.
We are out tonight doing clean ups. Salt is working real slow the last few days with the temps being so low. Getting hardpack, so in some properties we need to bucket scrape.

Got that annoying grainy snow all day that adds up over time. Some properties didn't hit trigger but are real sloppy/slushy. I hate plowing that stuff. Rolls off the sides of the plow and the chatter over dry areas drives me nuts. Like nails on a chalkboard.

Wow.
About 3300 views on this pushing snow thread. Impressive!
I feel like it's the Shawn and Craig Snow Show.

Now that is cool, you actually get paid to play with that equipment. Hey when I lived in VA for a little bit, they started making a brine with the salt and spraying it on the roads and that really seemed to work, have youz guyz ever done that?

Yep. We call it "Heat" up here. I think Shawn calls it "treated" which is the more common term. Our "heat" is a liquid we spray on the salt as it comes out of the spinner. It turns salt into super salt.
When we get temps in the single digits we use it.
When I call for it over the radio I tell my 22ton capacity truck to "Give em the heat Ricky!" in my best Major League voice.
I can get some pics tonight of the tanks on the trucks.

This is a lot we used heat on. It's from last year's 20+" storm. 10 hours of clearing snow, hauling it away and dropping the heat. This pic was taken 3hrs after the last flake fell.

When I was stationed in GF, ND being below zero all the dang time all they used was sand, we would get so much snow the base was like a maze, they would have to haul it off base and dump it. I never saw snow before I went there, it was a learning experience.

We do call it treated. It is the magic cure for super cold weather snow. It is amazing how fast it works. Unlike Craig we make ours at the shop, then it gets delivered to the salt depots in the zones. We have a pile of sand at one of the depots in my zone. It gets used outside of my zone so not sure where it is going. I have never used sand but from what I understand it is for traction but does nothing to melt the salt or snow. I don't have any pic because we haven't had any snow to speak of so no pictures. Next storm no matter the event plow or salt I will throw the drone up and get some pics and videos. Hindsight I should have took some this week. I sat around a lot. Totally spaced it
