The city has dumped a lot of salt on the streets ahead of the mixed precipitation (aka sleet) that we're expecting overnight... Vinny & O noted the salt mines on Avenue A and Avenue B this evening...
Our radar imagery is currently showing more steady precipitation, which will become widespread across the East Village late this evening into overnight.
So they were expecting an ice storm, and I guess the NYDS thought this was a good thing to do, but they neglected to understand that dumping this much salt on the highways created a salt cloud that got sucked into the ventilation systems of all the cars on the highway. I drove through it, and my eyes were burning and my mouth felt like I had just eaten 4 bags of pretzels. The salt was still in the cars vent system the next day. Haven't these idiots ever heard of BRINE.
