As of 6:00 am the Feb 8th winter storm appears to be less aggressive than originally thought. We are in the process of finishing our salt pre-treatment of commercial properties and trouble areas of residential streets. Pavement surfaces are right at freezing and this application will eliminate any slick spots during morning rush hour. More importantly it will put the chemical in place to keep the pavement from flash freezing later today when the temperatures crash into the 20’s. Any additional minor snowfall should be burned off as well, as long as the temperatures do not get too low too quickly. We will continue to monitor conditions throughout the day.
