When the weather is bad, clearing ice and snow from the roads is a job of critical importance.
Veteran road department employees know the routine.
They follow the weather forecasts and get the trucks and snowplows ready to roll.
This year, thanks to the purchase of a new salt brine mixer, county roads will have an added weapon in their winter weather arsenal -- all the brine they can use.
Salt brine is typically applied to the roadways before a snow storm arrives because it prevents snow from bonding to the road. That makes it easier to remove the snow.
