No salt, no salt

As soon as it starts snowing in St. Louis, the salt comes out.  Large amounts of coarse salt are imprecisely dumped on sidewalks and streets, presumably to help melt the snow and ice, but that purpose would be better served by using finer grains and spreading it out more evenly.  As it is, the salt is more of an eyesore, environmental contaminant and (I imagine) pet foot irritant.

Big, big grains of salt.  I could take my traveler's cheques to a competing resort.  (That is, I'm leaving town for Texas tomorrow.  Yay!)
