Those water softener pellets are big, you'd have to crush them up. The lowes in wheeling was selling that to customers. I found regular calcium snowmelt at a couple mom and pop places.

Were going to rack up some accumulation in a hurry. I made about a 4 minute round trip; started out with nothing on the roads and by the time I got home everythings covered. You can hear the snow hitting the ground and windows

Sledding... Head first or feet first or kneeling?

I go head first.

I haven't sledded in a while, but when I was still doing it I pretty much only did it if it was a road rash scenario in which case kneeling was the only option.
