With plenty of notice this time, crews around the Tri-state were ready for whatever Old Man Winter threw our way.
But the snow didn't come, so that means the salt is being held for next time.
Crews were out overnight treating bridges and overpasses that are the first to freeze when temperatures are this cold. They are trying to conserve salt because the price per ton has risen dramatically this year.
No matter what happens on Tuesday, crews around the Tri-state are standing by.
Snow crews are monitoring the weather at this hour and mobilizing trucks. Hundreds of crews are standing ready to treat state highways, roads and interstates in Ohio.
In the northern Kentucky counties of Boone, Kenton and Campbell, road officials say there are 52 trucks available and ready to keep you commute safe.
Crews on both sides of the river say they have plow blades attached and the trucks already loaded with salt.
However, in some communities such as Cheviot, salt has to be used sparingly. Cheviot city leaders have had to cut down their efforts because the price of salt per ton is too high.
"Morton Salt claimed that a lot of the salt supplies down south were flooded, and there's a shortage, and they tell us that our salt's going to be coming from South America," said Steve Neal with the city of Cheviot.
Cheviot has had to cut their salt supply in half for this year. Neal says crews will not treat flat or smaller side streets.
"Money only goes so far, and we can only do what we can do," he said.
