i have never even seen snow, much less drive in it. a coulpe of weeks ago when it was like 28, a neighborhood left the sprinklers on, and the road iced up just a little in about a maybee 10 foot area, and there was like a 10-15 car pileup, LOL!

Who lives somewhere that they sand the roads? I've heard of it, but do they actually never use salt? That would awsome.

Colorado uses sand, it just kinda mixes with the snow, and gives you a bit more grip.

What really sucks about Michigan is the amount of ice and studs not being legal. That and the giant potholes everywhere.

When it ices here in cookeville they sand instead of salt. Back home they used a chemical instead of salt, eats your car less.

Yeah, it has been raining here on and off all week. Last week we had 4" of snow, now it's all gone and raining. Week before that it was 65.

Every morning there is ice everywhere. By noon it all melts, then it rains again. I hate this state. The roads are BAD. I'm afraid to run a stiffer suspension because of them.

they mix salt with sand sometimes if its really bad, but never straight sand. Just carry some sand or salt in the back of your car...

Up at school (Menomonie, WI) they only plow the two main roads if it snows less than 6", they just lay sand down on the rest of the roads and let the big redneck trucks pack it all down.

There are lots of big redneck trucks down here, but they don't do much other than...... waste gas..... Oh and they often slide into ditches when it rains.

Does the sand help? It hasn't snowed here in two weeks and there is still rock salt EVERYWHERE.
