Colorado Z Drivers- Beware of Winter!

Since there's been virtually no posting in this section for a couple of years, here's one that's on the periphery of the "Show and Shine" area. For 2016, the Colorado Dept of Transportation (CDOT) has announced they will start using a brine solution on our roads and highways during winter storms. This solution consists of 25% salt and the rest water. While effective in keeping ice from forming in below freezing temperatures, I've seen similar solutions used in Nebraska and they're extremely corrosive. While the mag chloride solutions used by CDOT in past winters have been bad enough, this new brine solution promises to be worse for our Zs.

Typically, I get my redline track model out at least once during each of the winter months when the roads are dry. Depending on how much brine CDOT puts down, that may change...
