Prepare For This Winter

 In Rock Salt Buying Guide, Rock Salt Tips

As the seasons change, it’s important to prepare ourselves for the incoming weather. Fall brings cooler temperatures and then before we know it, it’s winter. You can never be too prepared when it comes to the winter season. So as the temperature begins to cool off, keep in mind the different ways you can prepare yourself for this winter.

Prepare For Winter

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the Heartland may experience below-normal snowfall and precipitation. In other words, the winter should stay on the mild side. Even though that sounds promising, there is always a chance the weather will change. If you live in the Midwest, you know that the weather can change at the drop of a hat. For example, one day it might be sunny and low 40’s, and then the next day it’s snowing. So it’s important to have winter supplies on hand at all times, just in case!


One of the best supplies to have on hand during the winter is salt. Salt is used on highways, driveways, local roads, parking lots, and so much more. Rock salt is the type of salt used to melt ice on the roads and keep people safe. The chemical makeup of rock salt is the same as table salt, but it’s coarser and not for human consumption. The rock salt penetrates ice and mixes the melted water to form a brine. As a result, the ice breaks away from the pavement and allows for shoveling. At Salt Industries we offer a variety of rock salt options to meet your needs. Whether you own a business and need to stock up, or simply want some for your garage, we can help.
