While I quoted the parts of the Detroit Free Press's Snowfall tapers across metro Detroit, but high winds, blowing snow still a problem in A snow day from Winter Storm Vulcan that bore on my day today, I skipped an entire passage about the salt shortage that has hit because of the severe winter. I did that in part because I had already quoted enough and didn't want to exceed what fair use allowed, but also because this is actually old news and I had a different source. It also follows my preference for "if it moves, it leads." Take it away WXYZ with Contractors hit by salt shortage.
Looks like we've make up for all that salt we didn't use during the mild winter of 2011-2012 and then some.
