None here - unless you count the kosher sea salt on my edamame.

Mat, I know 94 and 43 were salted due to all the accidents last night. Josh also saw salt on his way to work in the Waukesha/Wales/Genesee area and it is salty here at my work on Hwy 100.

:( x1,000,000

This is all my fault... I put my cars back on insurance yesterday morning thinking the roads would be clean for this week. Then, I saw the piles of salt this morning:mad:

Josh - did you buy an Exige? And a KG one? Cool! Didn't realize that. Did you get rid of the Vette?

A two Elige household! Nice.

And yes, snow and weather suck dong.

How dare you suggest such blasphemy, Jeff!! The Corvette is alive and well, snuggled in the garage with the Skittles. I am cornering Josh into keeping it forever by making it our wedding getaway car ;)



Also, Mat, my boss reports no salt in the Lisbon/Sussex area.

Milwaukee County & Racine county roads are all salted. Granted, idk why any of you would want to go to Racine county now that I think about it...

Western and Central New York.

I think we are still OK here. I did not see any salt trucks in the Buffalo area.

Don't know about the rest of our area.

Yep, Racine sent out the salt trucks in force. Apparently idiots were crashing on the only wet roads.

Roads are salted in the Green Bay area as well.
I-294 had salt trucks out last night from Lake Forest down to Elmhurst. Saw cnty(?) trucks spreading salt on major rds---North Ave/64, Lake str/20 and Hwy 83. Plenty of snow on the ground this AM. Still covering the foliage at sunset today. It left a LOVELY white film on my truck. It will be at least a week before some of that crap is washed off the road surfaces.

this sucks, i was really hoping to pull the car out on sunday when i get home. still have it in storage : (

on the plus side, it's currently sunny and 77 in San Jose! Unfortunately my 'ecoboost' ford rental isn't exactly a thrilling ride.

I hate salt! They recently started going crazy with liquid salt deicer this winter, I swear that crap seems to be harder to wash off the roads.

I just heard from one of my guys that they salted the NYS Thruway between Buffalo and Rochester. So we are off the roads till more rain.

Don't know if they salted the back roads around here.
