A Little Salt in Plainfield

After chipping ice away to make a channel along Route 12A in Plainfield yesterday, Gary Blish, left, and Robert Kibbie from the New Hampshire Department of Transportation pour salt along the channel to widen it in order to allow more water to run through it. Water runoff from the hillside had dammed up and ice was beginning to build up on the road. (Valley News - Jennifer Hauck)
