Farmer’s Almanac – Frosty Flip Flop Winter

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, January 2022 temperatures will average out milder than normal over much of Eastern and Central Canada, particularly during the first half of the month with a trend toward colder weather toward month’s end.
February, on the other hand, looks very cold, particularly across the Prairies and Rockies. British Columbia won’t be as frigid, but even out there, an unseasonable chill will be evident during the second week and again during the final days of the month.

In the U.S., this winter will deal an icy combo of above-average snowfall and below-average temperatures in the New England area, as well as parts of the Appalachian region, the Ohio Valley and the northern part of the Deep South. Interestingly enough, it predicts a colder and snowier-than-usual winter for southern New Mexico, as well.

XYNYTH Celebrates BC Day

XYNYTH Celebrates BC Day on August 2nd. It is a statutory holiday observed in the province of British Columbia, Canada. This day is also celebrated by other provinces as Civic/Provincial Day. It is celebrated on the first Monday in the month of August. The first British Columbia day Act was introduced in 1974. The main aim of this statutory holiday was to pay respect to the forerunners of the land. This day is of immense importance to celebrate the local culture, history and development throughout the years.

XYNYTH Celebrates 35 Years!

We’ve passed a milestone and we’re celebrating. This year marks the 35th year of XYNYTH Manufacturing.

It was not that long ago when back in 1986 XYNYTH was started. Back in those days, long before internet, XYNYTH was started as a small icemelt distributor in Western Canada. It wasn’t until 5 years later, that XYNYTH set up manufacturing, and begun to sell its products coast to coast in Canada. Their first product, Mountain Organic Natural Icemelter, quickly became a big hit with end-users. It was the very first Eco-Friendly icemelter to hit the shelves. Of course there were many “ney sayers”, suggesting it would never sell, “nobody cares about the environment”. Thankfully, they couldn’t have been more wrong, and today the effects of your products on the environment is paramount. Mountain today is one of the top best selling Environmentally Friendly icemelters on the market.

In this time of reflection, we certainly would like to thank all our
customers, vendors and associates for 35 wonderful, exciting and fun years. Working with great people has truly made the past 35 years an awesome experience. We could not have reached this far without the support and determination of every individual like you. We look forward to a continued relationship with you in the coming years.

Icemelter and new concrete (12 months old!)

A question we frequently get is “if Icemelter is safe to apply on new concrete?”

The answer is no, as newly poured concrete needs time to cure and settle. The application of icemelter on concrete less than 12 months old may weaken the concrete structure making it more susceptible to damage in the future.

In order to reduce slipping, falling and liability risks, we suggest applying sand on the new concrete slab to give it some traction.
For more information on icemelter and concrete, please refer to our Icemelt Resource Centre.

GroundWorks is UREA FREE!

GroundWorks Natural™ Icemelter is a pet-friendly icemelter, and it does not contain urea (sometimes listed as Carbonyl Diamide or Carbamide Resin), as Urea is very harmful to the environment even with very little amount.

Urea based ice melts are generally the ones labeled as safe for use around pets. However, with a practical working temperature of around -3.9°C / 25°F, urea is not a very effective ice melting product. Whereas GroundWorks will go down to – 23°C / -9°F, it melts the ice as much as it protects your pets’ paws.

Moreover, when urea washes off of driveways, it often ends up in the most nearby stream or river. Urea contains nitrogen and when released into the environment turns to ammonia, which can be quite toxic to aquatic life even in small amounts.

So when it comes to pet-safe icemelter, eco-friendly GroundWorks Natural™ Icemelter is your top choice!

La Niña is coming! Again!

La Niña is characterized by unusually cold ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific, compared to El Niño, which is characterized by unusually warm ocean temperatures.

This is the second consecutive La Niña winter. Last year’s episode was atypically short, forming in November 2016 and gone by February 2017.

It seems that the upcoming La Niña of 2017–2018 is going to be weak and relatively short-lived, too. The equatorial waters of the eastern and central Pacific are only slightly cooler than usual, which means that the effects of La Niña are expected to be weaker. So stay warm and stay safe during this winter!

Don’t be stuck, for the most snow to fall from mid-December to mid-February .  Are you ready for it? Make sure you are. Stock up and visit www.xynyth.com
