We got a foot of snow last night. I plowed the driveway, the neighbor and drove 18 miles to camp on the wet, salty roads to plow it out. In the basement I have to turn one valve on and another off to get hot water to a spigot outside. Iím taking a quick break right now from giving all sides of the truck a hot water rinse. Itís different for me with the company car to drive but in an hour the truck will be in the garage for at least 5 days. I hate salt. The 1987 Astro van I just sold was getting a bit rusty but it would have disintegrated years ago if it werenít for warm water baths.
Yes, the salt is bad. My truck will look white for the next 4 months... I hate it and just try to rinse it as much as possible. It's absurd the amount of salt and sand they use here in Northern NY!!! I'll try and grab a shot of my truck on a typical day... You will all
The previous pics are 1/100 of the crap we have to deal with.
I just deal with the salt and flip off the plow drivers
