They'll usually spray a calcium chloride mixture on the roads prior to an anticipated storm. It slows down the sticking and freezing of the snow.

They use pure salt or a mix of salt and sand depending on conditions. They'll come back and use straight sand at intersections and stop signs afterwards if tire polished ice is a problem.

LOL... the road crews don't screw around up here in the winter, no matter what mother nature drops. They do a great job of clearing the roads. Slopped up vehicles is the byproduct.

What did you do to your WK2 today?

Mine looked white like that before I washed it today. $7 indoor touch-less carwash with dryers that don't quite completely dry it. I just had to finish drying it with microfiber cloths.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

When it comes to road clearing in the Winter, it doesn't get better than in "those states" and provinces that get a lot of the white stuff and know how to deal with it. The worst places are those that infrequently get heavy winter weather and then end up paralyzed when suddenly there's a major storm...

I really need to get around to debadging mine this spring/summer. Just another place for the salt to get trapped and start working through the paint. Mine looks the same.

Can't even wash it right now, -7 so the car washes are all closed

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Your wish is granted - hand held or clip on anywhere, glovebox sized too - by 'STANDARD HORIZON' (S.H.) MODEL HX270S, SUBMERSIBLE EVEN ! NOAA weather whenever, wherever you are - on or off the water, in the mountains, in the valleys . . . ANYwhere the satellite signals can reach its 6" antenna ! Of course by now the model #'s changes? If not S.H. there are a few other makers . Any good boaters website (probably even Cabela's ?) would have these. Very cost effective.

'STANDARD HORIZON' hand held submersible NOAA Weather repeater/scanner. Model HX270S is the one I've had for years - model #'s come & go but IT works just about anywhere - probably not inside a cave or underwater though this model is submersible. Fits in your glove box w or without removing the 6" antenna. Batteries last long time. ANY boaters supply website & even Cabela's (?) will have these & other makes. Very Cost Effective.
