    If he's an Aussie he also must be a Digger.... And do Aussies actually know what snow is ? :(

    Sure we do. It snowed outside the hospital my daughter was born in, the day after she was born. Katoomba - they get snow about 2 months a year at altitudes above 1000m. A light dusting, at least.

    The snow plow drivers start plowing before the roads are impassable and keep plowing in increments so that the roads do not have to be shut down. They get to work before the snow is really heavy in order to accomplish this.

    Your array of knowledge always blows my mind.  Maybe it comes with age and being around so many different climates. 

    Please don't take offense but how in the world do you know this tidbit of information?

    Don't you remember the TV ads?  The snowplow drivers use Subaru  4 wheel drive vehicles to get to work.

    Around here they do go out early with solutions of calcium/magnesium acetate or calcium chloride that they apply in stripes on the major highways. It is a pre-treatment to keep ice from forming, which makes it easier to plow.

    One cable show about guys who actually plow those roads showed him arriving to work in his personal truck---and yes there was plenty of snow on the ground where the plows were parked.

    They treat the road first knowing ahead of time it is coming in. 

    We use beet juice so it does not pollute the lakes. 

    The plows are out before the snow/ice come in.

    You do bring a warmth to any question that might possibly go cold.  For that, I grant you the glass slipper which will turn into any shoe of your choice.
    I will throw in the left shoe to match this one.  I know this shoe has traveled many miles to answer many questions.
     
    Do you have a preference of shoe attire? This post was edited by Merlin at October 26, 2019 1:33 PM MDT
