Towns across NH running out of salt as more snow looms
With more snow in the forecast, towns across New Hampshire are complaining, "Where is all the salt?"
Small towns like Litchfield are feeling the pain.
"I've waiting four weeks for a delivery, and I don't think I've seen it because everyone is asking for salt," said Litchfield Road Agent John Pincario. "We're all swamped."
Bigger towns like Nashua and Hudson are on the top of the salt delivery list.
Hudson has already used all 3,200 tons of salt it budgeted for the season, with some salt set aside for back up. It's not everything the town needs, but Kevin Burns of the Hudson Public Works Department said it's better than nothing.
Turns out, there is not a shortage of salt, but rather the trucks that deliver it. Many of them are also contracted to haul away snow, which is the current priority.
