Salt At A Premium On This Wintry Day

People in Lexington preparing for the winter storm are finding out everyone else is doing the same. Those who are looking for ice melt may be out of luck.

All Lowe's stores in Lexington have been sold out since late Thursday afternoon.

A manager says the supplier doesn't think it will be able to deliver more ice melt until the end of the weekend.

Many business owners are looking for the ice melt to prevent people from slipping on sidewalks.

    Sorry it's actually 10 10 10 fertilizer and it works really well.

    Bet some people blame it on teh casinos. Lol Personally I love driving my jeep on an untouched snow covered gravel road. Sidewalks never bothered me either because the snow keeps traction ove rthe ice when your walking unless your built like an upside down top.

    I heard that 10 / 10 fertilizer works as well as the salt. Also, it doesn't eat up your concrete and helps your grass grow.

    The headline mentions the word "salt" but the text of the story says "ice melt" and doesn't mention salt at all. That's okay, too much salt will just cause our roads to have high blood pressure.

    Try cattle salt--it works for me when rock salt isn't available. Go to your local farm/feed store.
