City workers in Ankeny, Iowa are sprinkling garlic salt on roads to help melt the ice. A local spice producer donated 18,000 pounds of the special seasoning. From the Associated Press:
(Public Works administrator Al) Olson says the city mixed the garlic salt with regular road salt and it works fine. He says some road workers say it makes them hungry, but Olson doesn't recommend it to spice up lunch or dinner.
