Tis the season

ANKENY, Iowa – Slush has never smelled so spicy.

City crews in the Des Moines suburb of Ankeny are using garlic salt to melt snow and ice on streets from Tuesday’s storm.

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.

Iowa town’s roads well seasoned

The funny thing is, we often stop to eat in Ankeny when heading south from here.

  1. That plant is interesting. It’s right off the Interstate, so the drive will smell differently depending on what they’re making that day. Sometimes it smells like Oregano, sometimes like Garlic, etc.
    Thanks for sharing this. Funny!
