Default Cool snow technology

We are expecting some heavy snow tonight, before it changes to rain tomorrow. On the news, they talked about pre-treating the roads to encourage melting. Guess what they are using? A salt brine in BEET Juice. It makes the brine more effective. Here's to a purple New Year.

Walter - the other day I heard they were going to start doing that in some states. They've tested it and found it really helps to keep the roads from being too slippery. If not, beet salad for everyone.

On campus, they were using some type of coffee by-product on walkways. The whole place smelled like Starbucks.

My family is eastern european. My great-grandmother was my Bakka. My father's name was Walter. As a child I learned to make walnut rolls, yeast risen cookies filled with walnut paste or apricots or prunes. I am guessing your heritage is from Czechoslovakia? Because the country of my heritage was unknown for ages and then much maligned I don't even like to tell people. We were long time enemies with Czechs....except for those of us who were close friends. How about the bread? Did you enjoy a dense bread with a thick crust that you had for holidays?
