Winter Storm Olympia Spreading Snow and Ice Through Northeast and South-The Weather Channel

The Weather Channel Reports Winter Storm Olympia Spreading Snow and Ice Through Northeast and South including Buffalo and Rochester New York.

The Weather Channel has stated Winter Storm Olympia has produced hazardous travel, spreading snow and ice throughout the East. Furthermore, “various winter weather advisories, winter storm warnings and freezing rain advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service for Olympia, extending Maine to North Carolina.”

The most significant snowfall accumulations will be in an arc from northern Maine southwest along the Canadian border to western New York, northwest Pennsylvania and northeast Ohio. As colder air wraps in behind the low pressure system, some locations from West Virginia to central Pennsylvania and central New York may transition back to snow Tuesday night.

The heaviest accumulations, potentially more than a foot, will likely occur in a swath from the Appalachians to northwest Pennsylvania, western New York and parts of northern New England.

How Much Rock Salt and Ice Melt is Needed? Ask the Duke Company

How Much Rock Salt or Ice Melt is Do You Need? Contact the Duke Company (Ithaca or Rochester).

 

The Duke Company is not only known for snow removal/construction equipment rentals, rock salt and ice melt; but, we offer fast delivery and have top rated customer service offering expert advice on a variety of questions. One question we often get is how much rock salt or ice melt is needed. We take into consideration your specific circumstances (e.g., pet, vegetation, asphalt, concrete, weather conditions). We service the state of New York and beyond. Contact the award winning Duke Company at 585-292-9870  (Rochester NY) and 607-347-4455  (Ithaca NY).

Or we can give you a quick quote via our web portal.

When determining the amount of rock salt or deicer needed, we refer to the products specific guidelines, however you can use the following as a rough estimate.

 

Square Footage of Driveway or Walkway x 3.1 = Total number of pounds of rock salt
(Total number of pounds of rock salt/ice melt) / (50) = Total number of bags of rock salt or ice melt needed

Key:

  • 3.1 = Recommended lbs. of rock salt/ice melt per square foot
  • 50 = 50lb bags (as we carry 50lb bags)

For example:

You have a driveway that measures 100′ long by 40′ wide. 100’x40’=4000 sq feet

4000 square feet x 3.1 = 12400 pounds

(12400 pounds)/50 pounds = 248 bags

Please note:

This conversion is used only a general estimate, and while the Duke Company can give you a more specific measure — the total amount actually needed includes variables that are unpredictable (i.e., weather conditions, amount of snow).

Also, this conversion is only based off of the fact that the snow on top of the ice has already been shoveled.

Examples of Deicers we carry include:

Polar Ice Meltby Kissner
