3. Pa. used cinders when was a little kid. I think they did away with them and went to salt to save

$$ having to pay people to remove the cinders. Why they went to chems I don't know but both the salt & chems play hell with your vehicles!

I remember having to put chains on too when the snow was really deep. That was fun. Struggle to get the chains on and latched, then put the spreaders on and if you managed to kit some dry roads on the way home from work and went too fast, the chains would hit the fenders, and if you did that for too long, you'd break a chain crosslink. Stop, try to fix it with a monkey link, and that didn't work, you took the chains off.

One MORE thing =I don't miss!
