Well they would of been pre treating 3 days early and the warm weather and rain we had days after that would of got rid of what they put down. We really didnt get much for snow at all, the little it snowed this morning was melted away on the ground within an hour of hitting. Still in 40s and will be near 50 this weekend and in mid 50s next week. Salt does nothing for snow anyways. But I have been told by highway employees that they have to get rid of the salt they have whether the roads are wet or dry and temps in the 70s, they can not keep it. I will just have to wait another month for any cruising with the top down thats all.

I have seen plenty of road treating ahead of storms that turn out to be just rain. Unfortunate, but it is what it is.

I suspect that there's an ECO issue with leaving a giant pile of salt over the summer to leach into the groundwater every time it rains in high concentration...

Well, they did it here too. State and county roads are white with salt for no reason. The secondary roads have not been treated with sand or salt and are perfectly clean which proves the treatment was unnecessary. The only explanation has to be the "use or loose" or environmental storage issues.

This really sucks as there is no appreciable road washing rain in sight. My Camaro is back on the battery tender.

It would be nice if they could come up with some type of covered storage or something other than throw unnecessarily onto clean dry roads with no freezing temps, rain nor snow in the forecast for the next week and half and temps in the 50s almost 60 the rest of the week. There have been multiple articles in the paper and news on the over abundance of salt leaching into rivers and farm fields and ground water from the excessive salting of the roads. Here is hoping for some more rain to clean the roads yet again because it is not worth risking a cruise when that is the whole point of putting it away, is to not have a single grain of salt touch the camaro. Drive it for one day in these conditions would defeat the purpose of the 5 1/2 months i just stored it. Mine stays in storage on the tender for at least the next two to three weeks after a much needed days of rain with no more added salt.

In Canada we have "Salt Domes" scattered throughout the city/country to store salt all year long. We have been lucky in southern ontario, roads are clean after a few weeks of rains....After April 1st the city/municipalities cut their snow removal/salting crews down to almost zero. We actually had the street sweeper come by my local street today for the after winter clean up.

Thanks! I had a Borla exhaust with carbon Fiber Tips which rounded out the look but with moving 1/2 way cross country and losing access to my friend's lift, I opted to pull it off and put the factory exhaust back on. I still have the Borla and haven't decide whether I will be putting up here to sell, or maybe putting it back on at one point...I do miss the sound and the look!

With another lock down ordered for my wimpy province, I will be getting out with the top down (weather is perfect for this time of year).

Feels good to be free
