Yes,,, global warming my a$$,,

get this,, I have a five gallon bucket that's about half full of old water softner salt sitting outside,, it has about six inches of water on top of the salt,, the water has never froze, not even a crust of ice on top.. but the salt underneath the water is froze solid.. I checked the temp of the water the other day and it was 9 degrees.

I know that the water is completely saturated with salt and that's what keeps it from freezing down to 6 degrees. but I wonder why the salt itself is froze solid? you can take a small shovel and try to dig some salt out of the bottom,, its hard as a rock,, lol
