Salt in the wound

About twice as much salt has been dropped along local roads and highways to clear about 3 feet of snow and ice that’s fallen so far this winter.

Winter isn’t over yet, but salt supplies are running low as central Indiana has been hit with more than twice as much snow as is typical.

Local street departments order enough salt to last a typical winter each year and get a discounted price. This winter has not been typical, and the county already has had about an inch more snow than it did in all of   last winter.
