Ice Melt’s in Short Supply

More snow is falling this morning and one important ingredient of snow removal is in short supply -- ice melt.

In some stores, the pallets are empty and store owners said the warehouses they order from are out.
One store in Glastonbury ordered 800 bags from out of state and sold out in a day.

And they don’t think they’ll have any more to sell this season.

“We’re out. So my son-in-law is shoveling a ton. And the kids are helping out. It’s good -- good muscle building,” Anne Schoff, of Fernandina, Florida, said.

If you find yourself in a pinch without salt, you can use water softener, but it won’t melt the ice as quickly.
