Salt Pile in Owen Sound
... that winter is on its way. We had the first shipload of road salt delivered from Cleveland this week. It sits in the lot at the elevator here in Owen Sound while trucks remove it to storage. A second load is expected next month.

Winter is coming! Be prepared!

Two issues with this thread. Potentially you could be banned by bringing up that word "winter". Not happy with you.

Secondly, why in the name of the earth is Owen Sound buying freaking salt from Ohio?

Other than Cleveland, the big US salt supplier is Detroit.

------------------------------------------

OT, but maybe of interest to you Canadians interested in geography:

Cleveland, Ohio was originally part of the claims of the state of Connecticut, being in a line directly west from the original Connecticut.

It was Connecticut's "Western Reserve", which is why Western Reserve University (now Case Western) is in Cleveland.

Sifto has been shut down.

Actually, what I infer from that is that the Sifto mine was temporarily shut down because they have a crap-load of inventory left over from a mild winter. Not that they don't have any to sell. Curious.

Sifto Closed in Goderich
Goderich
by Dianne Colgan
The Sifto Salt Mine is beginning a shut down today.
Compass Minerals Communications Manager Kelly Barton confirmed to Bayshore Broadcasting
News two weeks ago that the salt mine would temporarily shut down this month.
The email blames historically mild winter weather as the reason for the break and says Sifto needs
to rebalance their inventory.
Barton said they expect the shut down to last about three weeks.
The temporary layoff will affect about 280 employees.

No word if they are open yet, either.

Yeah, again though, it's strange that if they had a glut of salt, so much so that they'd close the mine, that they wouldn't be unloading it cheap to local municipalities. Perhaps all salt providers have a lot and prices have plummeted. They may be just hanging onto it until prices improve.

Or they have an overstock and as it's a non-perishable item, they can hang on to it for a while.

What winter?? The next day, Owen Sound got its first shipload of the world's largest pile of french fries! It must all be for the Harrison Park picnic!
