Here at the airport we are very happy to say goodbye to Old Man Winter and welcome all spring has to offer.  This winter has been like no other.  But we are proud to say that our crew of winter weather warriors kept our airport fully operational all winter long.  Here is winter by the numbers:

·         31,750 gallons of liquid deicer used on the airfield

·         19,147 gallons of diesel fuel used in snow equipment

·         12,000 pounds of solid deicer used on the airfield

·         5,218 hours of time put on snow equipment

·         4,902 hours of overtime worked during snow removal

·         388 tons of road salt and anti-skid used on land side

·         43.2 inches of snow received at MDT as of 2/28/14

·         19 tons of sand used on airfield

·         12 cutting edges replaced on plows

·         An average of 1.9 inches of snow fell per hour

·         Heaviest snowfall day:  February 13

Needless to say we will not be complaining when the heat and humidity are upon us, all we have to do is check this list!
