Waiting for snow

Posted on February 05, 2010 12:00 am by in Weather

This time of year the weather channel becomes our favorite TV station. The last few weeks we have watched storm after storm slide south and pound our neighbors. Well, I think this week may be different. On the way in to CAK this morning, the weather reports I heard said expect everything from 1-3 inches to a foot of snow.



The CAK Snow Crew spent the last few days making sure everything is ready to go. We are ready to battle anything Mother Nature throws our way- whether its an inch or a foot.



Something most people don't realize is we are not permitted to use salt on the airfield. The FAA only allows a very limited number of chemicals that will not corrode an airplane, and man they're expensive. One example: 1 ton of road salt = $55.00

1 ton of NAC (FAA salt substitute) = $1,995. Another little known fact, our airfield is equal to about 35 miles of city streets. Add 12 inches of snow on all that, and it could be a fun weekend.



A few days ago Buckeye Chuck, my favorite groundhog, predicted an early spring, I hope he is right.

No, thanks. I don't like to save money on airfare.
