Before the latest freeze I made sure that the driveway was dry and, if not dry, was well coated in salt. So why is it covered in a layer of ice up to 3 inches thick?
It’s cold today, but tomorrow it’s going to rain. A lot. All of that water and all of the melting ice/snow will wind up in the basement.
Project Drainage won’t happen for a few months.
In the meantime, there’s a very good reason why I wear ice crampons.
