    How about every salt truck in the county!
    Temps are going down and the freezing rain is over.
    And no warmth in sight till ‘maybe’ tomorrow afternoon.

  2. J.G. Wentworth says:

    The back up was the result of a salt truck being struck by a p/u and a semi. Can’t say what other people do, but when I see the salt trucks going slow, I go slower! Just sayin. Kudos to the people salting and trying to make safe for all, even the people who won’t slow down.
