Knucklehead moment of the week.
We have been having a lot of snow and ice the last few weeks. And at my house, we ran out of rock salt to clear the driveway. So I went to the store about bought the pictured bag of Morton Salt Pellets.
When I got them home, I noticed that these pellets looked like a mixture of horse pills and moth balls. A long, white, cyclinder. But they were from Mortons, who makes salt, right? So I spread the pellets all over my ice covered driveway, and waited, and waited, and waited some more. No melting, no change whatsoever.
After further review, I notice what I had done. I bought Mortons Water Softner Pellets. Not rock salt. Instead of melting the ice, I was making it softer and easier on the drains.
I am such a moron.
