Clearing Snow With Sodium: Madness or Not Yet Tried?

I have some experience combining sodium metal with seawater (at a safe distance; watching the molten sodium fire out blobs which led to tertiary explosions was quite spectacular).  You can buy it from Amazon.  Has anyone ever used it as ultimate snow melt?

I am impressed the stuff Amazon has for sale.  Aluminum powder for making your own thermite.

A reader pointed me to this supplier of thermite.


  1. Expensive....

    Calcium Chloride is more practical.

  2. This is what you need, Clayton. Think of the fun you'll have! :-)
