Winter Wonderland

I think this is hilarious: A town in Iowa has been using garlic salt to de-ice its roads.

The salt, which is being used in a suburb of Des Moines, was donated by a local spice producer.

Also, totally unrelated, I went to the post office today and boy, howdy, was it crazy. Drivers were acting like it was demolition derby time in their attempts to get to the drop boxes, the line inside was out of control, and the lobby do-it-yourself stamp machine was being commandeered by a woman with several packages.

Which is, you know, part of what it's there for. But it's definitely Christmas crunch time, that magical time before the holiday when everyone goes insane.
