Indication of how well this winter is going...

Does DM Have Enough Road Salt?

Basically says they have enough for two more weather events. It's only Jan.5. This month and the next are usually the worst. Should be fun.

The sidewalks are a sheet of ice, as are parking lots. Driving home yesterday was like driving through a landscape of mirrors. The sun reflected so brightly off of the ice covered snow that I had a headache by the time I got home. Of course, I was home a good 16 hours after I had intended to be home, due to the ice rain (my favorite form of winter precip). We saw two cars upside down in ditches. Only two because they warned people to stay off the roads, and it appears that many actually listened.

At least the guys there are actually using it. They're being totally stingy with it over here. I have a feeling we're going to end the winter with our entire "supply" intact. Don't mind all the cars off the side of the road...
