Salt Shortages This Winter

Popular Mechanics has an article about the rock salt shortages this winter. You'll find it interesting.
One of the largest mines in the country is in Hutchinson, Kansas. You can tour it (details here). The photo is from last summer when Kathleen and I went on the tour. Because of the extreme stability of the salt formation and its ideal characteristics for storing just about anything, you'll find the entire library of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and other items you would never imagine.
