12/7/2021 – Pre-Dawn – Most moisture from yesterday’s rain has dried up, however some ice has been reported due to shaded areas where ground temperatures remain below freezing.  In anticipation of a disturbance Wednesday to Thursday morning, we took the opportunity early this morning to pre-salt properties and train new crew members.  This management method helps to mitigate slippery conditions and ultimately reduces environmental impact as it reduces the compaction of snow and ice, thus less salt is used.   

11/27/2021 – The rain that began yesterday, transitioned into snow showers early this morning.  Because ground temperatures are still above freezing, we have not observed any icing yet.  Air temperatures are forecasted to drop below freezing near daybreak, so salt crews are out applying product to certain commercial properties and monitoring all others.  More unsettled weather is expected Sunday into Monday.

11/8/2021 – Pre-Winter Preparations!  As we continue with Fall Clean-Ups, we must also prepare for snow management.  The majority of our winter equipment is stored indoors during the summer months to reduce degradation by the sun.  This equipment was taken out of storage at the beginning of October and is in the process of being readied for winter operation.  Crews have begun staking properties and placing salt barrels on sites.  Routes are being finalized and annual training will begin shortly.  With the upgrade of our website, it is our intent to post our storm management plans before each storm, with possible updates as we feel needed during or after the weather event, to keep our clients posted.
