The municipality used to put down sand in our area and now, at least on our tiny street, they put down finely crused gravel.  Guess its cheaper than sand but sure does make a mess of the street and on the lawn next to the street come spring.  DH has quite a time raking it out and then the municipality has to sweep it up later.

Hope your weather improves enough to get your car washed Penny.

Jill, that makes complete sense -- just the little that the 
local snow plows shove up on our lawns indicates that dumping
in Lake Ontario would polute. We've had a car parked at the
top of the driveway for 48 hrs now, just in case of emergency -- 
and the snow plow came through to scrape the icey slush
aside 'round about 7:00am, flinging it up all over the windshield
and hood of the car! Obviously we can't hose it down until the
weather improves.. but that salt and sand corrodes.
