A salting they will go!

Today's weather, albeit grey, slippery, cold and ... depressing, is actually very exciting for us here at Jody's Lawn Care! We have been watching with baited breath for cooler temperatures, and get a comical giddiness when we see the "special weather alert" posts on our Facebook pages for Ontario snow warnings. With the falling snow/rain combo and low temperatures, we have our salters at the ready to ensure that there are ice free areas throughout Simcoe, Port Dover and Cambridge (and often areas in between)!

 

We did some salting over the weekend, and those same teams are out today. Salting may seem like a simple, basic, affair, but it is very important. Salt is the first line of defense against slips and falls, and ice accumulation. This is very important not only for our business owners, but all traffic (whether vehicular or pedestrian). Safety is the most important consideration when you tackle Winter weather, whether this is maintaining good body posture (lift with your legs!), ensuring you are wearing proper Winter attire (boots with good tread are essential) or thinking ahead (like applying salt to the parking lot and sidewalks).  Jody's team take this all seriously. and this includes not only actually salting, but also inspecting the site throughout weather events to ensure it is looked after (site visits are free and just help us guarantee the property is safe for our clients/the public). So if you see our team out, be aware we are working to keep everyone safe.

 

The weather forecast is calling for a moderate amount of precipitation over the next few days. Temperatures are a bit variable, so whether this will be rain or snow remains to be seen. Regardless, we assured we will be attentive and prepared to mitigate the risks.

 

Be careful tonight with the commute home, roads are not going to lie this freeze/thaw situation we are in. Leave lots of room between vehicles and drive slow. There is no rush to get home, it is more important to get home in one piece. Stay warm and stay safe!
