Really sad. If found guilty he should burn at the stake.

The Holy fire definitely got the air resources today. The ATC map looked like a traffic jam over the fire. CNF reports they used 10 helicopters, 16 regular type air tankers, and 3 VLAT (Very Large Air Tankers) such as the DC10, MD80, GST747. That is a LOT of fire power!

Snapped this from my driveway this afternoon. It's the "big gun", and shortly after it dropped a DC-10 to do the same thing thing.

New if we can just get some premixed windshield washer fluid that is rated for freezing that would be great....silly CA crap.

Lol Wisconsin has huge domes of salt that get depleted every winter....the roads literally turn white from all the salt. Not super for your car but not awful if you wash it off after each storm.

We have the undercarriage wash here in Idaho too.

I was in Colorado and the local car washes would also spray the bottom of your car to get the product off of your car as soon as the snow cleared. This stuff my work but it messes up your car. The car wash in BBL would be smart to add an undercarriage wash system.

Brine vs salt, either one is completey soluble in water and I believe snow is a form of water. The salt crystals dissolve to form a brine, brine is brine, they buy the salt from a vendor I am familiar, my company I worked for bought tons of salt per day It is the water based form that causes corrosion on the road and on your car. As far as brine sticking to the road this is BS, get it wet no difference. Your tires have fun disturbing it.

Being from the Midwest i am very familiar with road salt and brines. We towed our 2004 Honda CRV to Wisconsin behind our motorhome. First thing my brother asked, what year is your car. Brine, salt will rust out your car in 5 years. In northern Michigan they use calcium brines from the oil field. Brine is technically is no different from its solid counter part.

So where is the salt going according to them?

Anyone remember from physics class The Law of Conservation of Mass ?

Quess it goes down micro black holes

East coast salt test that is...

Funny razz, passed right by the brine truck. Immediately behind it was two CHP suv's, presumably doing an easy coast salt test...what bothers me is how much salt is going into the lake. Where's the masses of bluegill and sunfish that we used to spend afternoons catching and throwing back?

A 5 gal bucket should suffice. Just give Wisconsin's DOT a call..

Cheese brine, where can I buy some to marinate my politicians butts?

The Sierras use it but supposedly CA banned it decades ago due to being environmentally unfriendly and the wildlife are drawn to it, birds & brake for the dear munching in road! Wisconsin uses a cheese brine, go figure.
