  How many of you have seen the sprinkler systems watering lawns in the summer? Well, take that same idea and have the sprinklers lightly misting sidewalks and roadways with a brine solution. I know it will not work under a certain temperature but at least I will not have to get out and shovel. You could modify the sprinkler heads to run in series at a low pressure ( which the brine will not freeze) and when a sensor detects a snowfall, the pressure raises allowing the sprinkler heads to activate.
