The iconic Morton Salt umbrella girl has warned "When it Rains it Pours" since 1914. The mascot in the yellow dress has had it right for 100 years, and at no time has that been truer than during this year's incredibly tough winter. There's been plenty of salt being poured this season, but for municipalities across the country, there might not be enough of it to keep going.

Road crews in Ankeny, Iowa, have an interesting problem on their hands. It seems that the city is using just a pinch a half-and-half mixture of garlic salt and normal rock salt to season clear its roads during the winter. How did the small suburb of Des Moines manage to get 18,000 pounds of garlic salt, you ask? Apparently, a local spice company called Tone's had no use for the garlic salt and had it earmarked for a landfill. Instead, the tasty condiment was donated to the city for use on its ro
