Having just lived through a record breaking blizzard it seems like a good time to talk about what happens on the other side of the pier. Tankers filled with road salt come and go with great regularity all year long. No sooner have the tugs brought them in and they've tied up then the giant bucket is bringing the salt up out of the hold. Dump trucks line up and move the salt across the street into huge mountains. When there's a snow storm in the forecast the salt trucks will lineup, fill up and drive back to their respective counties.
Then the dance begins. Fill up, drive across the street, dump salt, back across the street and repeat and repeat and repeat.
You can see they come in all sizes and colors. This is just a small sample of the ships that come in filled with road salt.
