Mother Nature is being a total butt right now. Last week, we dang near froze to death. This week, we are going to get buried in snow. Hold on, it's going to be a bumpy ride. One thing you can do to make your life a little easier - load up on a helpful salt/sand mixture for your driveway and/or sidewalk. Did I mention that it's completely free?

The city of Rochester provides the free mixture, limit one 5 gallon bucket per vehicle. You must bring your own bucket. There are two convenient locations to pick up yours' - on 1st Ave SW next to the YMCA and behind Fiesta Cafe in the Northbrook Shopping Center.
