Who knew that Detroit had it's own salt company and salt mine? Not me. And one that's family owned with Detroit Pride too. The Detroit Salt Company claims to be as much a part of Detroit as Vernors or Ford (though apparently their products aren't for sale to the general public--this might explain the lack of publicity).
It's funny when you find out about little things like this that don't really have an impact on your life but are neat to know about, and make sense. With all the snow and ice we get it seems logical, but who thinks about those things? Also, did anyone else ever use road salt in 7th grade biology to make ice cream? Think how much ice cream we could make with those piles of salt...
