Free Salt

After the last snow storm, the county Bureau of Highways salt truck inadvertently dumped a couple of hundred pounds of road salt in the street in front of my house. In an earlier storm the same thing occurred on another street in our neighborhood. At that time Mama Wordbones quipped that if we cleaned it up we probably wouldn’t need to buy any salt for our driveway for the rest of the year. The rains eventually washed that particular pile away.

This time it was much more convenient. With the nice weather this past Saturday I went out into the street with a shovel and a broom and filled these three containers. We now have enough salt to get us through a couple of winters.
