Ever wonder why vehicles that come from the southern states don't have much, if any, rust? Or, to put that in reverse, why vehicles that come from the northern states do rust? Here's why - road salt! On days when the roads are wet from the salt melting the snow, it splashes up onto the vehicle. On days when the roads are dry, the salt dust swirls in the air like fog as it gets kicked up from traffic. I did a Home Depot run in Littleton yesterday, which is about a 3 hour round trip. Besides coming home with my truck loaded with materials to continue the barn building, it looks like I picked up enough salt to keep my whole yard clear for the rest of the winter!
