Rain and snow have residents looking for the best
way to remove ice from their walkways.
Employees at Ace Hardware say it's best to remove
the ice earlier rather than later.
Putting ice melt on slippery spots will help thin
but using an ice scraper or pick will help break up
the thicker patches.
The general manager of Ace does offer a warning when
using the ice pick.
Just be careful.
You know, chipping away close to the house or close
to the drive way sometimes it can get away from you
and slide into the house.
You're just trying to peal that layer of ice up you
know, and keep on working it.
The store says because of the ice.
at one point during the day it actually ran out of
salt before having to ordering more.
