Salt and Ferret January 27th 2008

 

For those of you that are not familiar with English roads the local government roads department grits the major roads with salt when the temperature outside drops below freezing.  I made the mistake in wanting to drive my Ferret after this had been done hence the title Salt and Ferret.  What a mistake!
