Rock Salt in Bulk for the Roads During Winter

I need to purchase some rocksalt for the Winter storms this year so that I can be prepared ahead of time. Although, it is already starting to get pretty cold some nights. I woke up the other morning, and when I checked the weather, it said it was 28 degrees outside. That is definitely the coldest it has been since Spring rolled around. I am not really looking forward to the onset of Winter, but it can’t be avoided, and it is best to be prepared.

I happen to live on a road that is fairly isolated, and although it is paved, and in pretty good condition, nobody from the local government applies salt to the road surface during the Winter when there is a potential for a strong snow or ice storm. That is unfortunate, since this road has the potential to get fairly treacherous during the winter when it covered in snow or ice. The road is quite winding, narrow, and steep; not to me mention, the road is fairly long too. The only houses on the road belong to members of my family, and as such, I see it as being sort of my responsibility in order to keep the road well salted in the Winter when there is a chance of significant inclement weather. I really hope that it does not snow too often this winter.

I wonder how much salt I should buy this year, I guess I will check some forecasts. I do not really know why, but I have the feeling that this winter is going to be colder than most. I hope that this feeling in my gut is wrong though. I need to start looking online for rock salt so that I can go ahead and place an order sometime this afternoon.

Information to Help Clean an Older Car That Was Recently Purchased

audi-concept-car-i-robot-01-copy.jpgI just recently bought a used car and it is pretty filthy and could really use some cleaning, in more ways than one. However, it is such a mess, that I really do not have much of an idea as to how to best go about cleaning it and restoring it to a better condition. As such, I am looking for tips on how to clean my car on the internet, because I am kind of at a loss right now.

The inside of the car smells like stale smoke, and other unsavory things. It is pretty clear that the previous owner smoked a whole lot cigarettes, or some sort of tobacco product, in the car during their period of ownership. I really hate the smell of tobacco and cigarette smoke, and somehow, this stale smoke smell that is in the car is worse. There are a lot of stains on the interior of the car, and I have no idea how to clean them up.
