This southern boy must be a wimp, I hate cold weather (mid 40s and below)!

Yea they use that brine every time they mention chance of snow here. Its the salt dust sometimes they put so much down looks like you're riding on a dirt road.That dust gets in places you can never wash out,pits the shit out aluminum in nothing flat. Luckily no salt yet here!

The only way it works is to have a drain in the garage, which is against EPA rules because of pollution.

Drainage is taken care. Furnace is up and running. It's getting running water to the building, either run it 100' from house or I drop a sand point in.

Unfortunately living on a gravel road with gravel driveway, you can never get all the snow and ice completely off.

Lucky you. My garage is attached to the house. Inspectors wouldn't give me occupancy with a drain in my garage.
I've been considering drilling one in now that we are all settled.

There once was a biker named Double-Fat. Who rode all over like a cafeined gnat.
