From Blade Runners earlier this morning:  "We know your property is icy.  We have successfully plowed all of the properties.  We would have liked to apply ice control but we were not able to do this.  We were forced to send the walkway crews home early because of the cold weather conditions that we deemed dangerous.  Our entire staff is resting and will return in the mid morning.  Today will be about ice control.  ... Magic Salt to Roadway will be completed this afternoon and early evening."
