Snow? Worse.

At first it looked like snow on this chilly February day... but in fact it was much worse... The scourge of winter.. the horrors... it was salt!

I guess if it is frosty salt really does help to keep things melted. but really, it is absolute trash on vehicles and can stain and corrode almost anything. Even cockroaches have been known to recoil in horror from it.

I was reading a thread on a forum about winter riding and the consensus was to not wash off salt unless there was already water on the roads. The water triggers the corrosive effects of the salt, in particular, warm water is the worst to wash with when there’s salt involved.
