    What does Ankeny use to melt the snow on the roads?

    According to the Associated Press they are using garlic salt. 18,000 pounds of the stuff was donated to the city of Ankeny.

    Saw a clip on the news up here a couple weeks back about one of the suburbs using molases in with the salt brine. I guess it smelled like gingerbread when they spray it.

    Try living across the road from Burke in Nevada. It always smells like pizza toppings or garlic bread, 365 days a year.

    I noticed a couple people out rubbing bread on 1st street today. That makes sense now.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Really a smart move by Ankeny though when you think about it. It helps melt ice on the roads, and keeps away pesky vampires, win win.

    Great idea for Tones, too. Why toss it when they can get it used. As a bonus their workers can get in easier :)
