Winter is here, but only on the calendar

BOWLING GREEN (Friday, Jan. 31, 2020) - It's winter -- we guess.

The stats for this winter versus last tell you what you likely already know -- winter has been light so far this year.

Below are the current figures for the 16-county region in northwest Ohio regarding materials used, equipment miles driven, and total costs incurred during snow and ice control operations within ODOT District 1 and 2 (Allen, Defiance, Hancock, Hardin, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert, Wyandot, Fulton, Henry, Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, Williams and Wood counties).

The stats represent all of this winter season through Jan. 30, 2020:

ODOT winter fact: Salt was first used to treat snow and ice-covered roads in the mid-1940s, but its use wasn’t fully embraced until the 1950s. Use increased as more agencies became aware of the higher level of service salt could provide in addition to plowing and as the North American road system expanded.
