Tips on Using Salt to Melt Ice Safely Around Your Home

By
Real Estate Agent with Shahar Management

Yesterday I was driving to work and glanced down at the outside temperature and couldn't believe how cold it was.  I think we are having the coldest winter we have had in quite a few years.  Since I have had my car I don't think it has even registered under 20 degrees.

Zero Degree Temperature in January
It looks like there may be another ice and possible snow storm coming tomorrow.  There is still quite a bit of ice (around here) on the ground from Thursday's storm.  Try and chop it up if you can today while the sun is out in case there is more ice tomorrow and everyone be safe!

After leaving my home state of Michigan to move to California for 23 years I have moved back to Michigan (brrrrr!) to marry a former high school classmate I was reaquanted with at our 30 year class reunion.  It's been 10 years and I'm still loving being back home and I must admit the snow is beautifulbut this cold... I've now become more aware of the harm salt can be to everything, good advice.

Debra, the high temperature for us today is -13 BELOW ZERO!  It is a good idea to pack some emergency ultra warm winter clothing especially very heavy parka, wool socks, warm mittens, winter boots, and sock hat and wool scarf that would cover the face.  We had life threatening blizzard conditions yesterday with very heavy drifting!

Stay warm and safe, Debra!

Hi Debra: Good Morning. Always, I take into consideration the safety of my pets before I use any product that could potentially harm them. And deicer and salt are one of them.

I don't use salt and deicer much. Just not use to it I guess. :) Keep yourself arm and safe. It is frigid cold. It is one of the favorite terms of the newscasters to describe the severity of the cold weather.

Bruce - Wow isn't this awful?  BE SAFE!  I hope it ends soon and you have some warmer weather.  My daughter last night was throwing water up into the air and it was coming down as snow...it wasn't even hitting the pavement.  Now that is cold!

Maria - I agree about the pets always but sometimes when the ice is so bad you have to take unusual steps to protect people from getting hurt when there is no relief from the cold and ice.  Stay warm and safe!
