So I visited my parents this weekend in Holland, out by the Tech Center, and I noticed on Port Sheldon out by Beaver Dam, and on 120th to about Chicago Drive there was salt and sand all over the roads and not a trace of snow anywhere. What's going on with this?

Salt & sand isn't put on the roads for snow. Salt & sand is put down for ice. With temperatures dropping below freezing at night and rain in the forecast this week expect to see salt and sand put out by the road departments. Especially at bridges.
