    I go to WalMart and get the round cartons of table salt (not iodized) for my stairs and the path to my car. Wicked cheap.

    It's a sellers market out there, and they know it! The trick is buying before you need it, and most sellers know that the users don't tend to do that. I can hardly blame them for jacking the prices up.

    I'm glad it wasn't too bad! Mom was flying out of TO and was glad she made it home.

    Tuesday is was miserable here. -45C, yes minus, with the windchill. So cold! Busses stopped, but work didn't


    Glad to see everyone else is doing okay!

    we still have 10s of thousands of people without power, and DP&L says it may be Friday night before they get a lot of them back on. Just ridiculous.
    I'm in an area that has underground power lines - those areas with hanging lines just lose power all the time.

    Reading this thread just proves how insane the local government is. I am in Baton Rouge and we're predicted to get a bit of icy rain tonight and it's not predicted to stick past sun-up. They've closed all government offices and a handful of schools (so far). We're getting down to a low of 28--which seems like a high for most of y'all! Yeah, I have to let my pipes drip, and I worry about ice on my steps (they ice over easily because they're raised) but some hot water and a broom will get me out of the house. Actually, the bigger worry is Thursday night into Friday where there's icy rain predicted for hours and people here can't drive in hot rain, let alone freezing rain!

    Finally got my drive cleared enough to get out. My brothers friend did it really cheap. We sit about 200 ft off the road so it was a pretty good sized job.

    So glad I live in SoCal.
    Geez, from reading your posts, if I were smart and evil, I'd buy scads of rock salt to sell to snow country at jacked-up prices.

    Same for me in NorCal! It was chilly today, which means it was in the 60's and sunny, with a bit of a breeze (the chilly part). I'm an Orange County girl, so snow would be a no-go for me. I'm too wimpy!

    I read an article on CNN about one town that is using pickle brine instead of salt. Apparently, it's WAY cheaper than the salt. The whole town probably smells like a deli!

    I've also read something about beets. They are welcome to ALL of mine.

    I saw that article, and thanks to Snooki and her pickle obsession, I got a kick out of the fact that the town is in New Jersey.
