“Dear PoP,

Hey there, any clue where DC residents can get ice-melting salt? Would be great to plan ahead this time…”

Any good hardware store should have some. In Mt. P you can go to Pfeiffers on Mt. Pleasant Street. In Mt. Vernon Triangle there is a good hardware store on 5th between the safeway and Busboys & Poets (I forget the name). And for the Hill folks of course there is the great Fragers on Pennsylvania Ave, SE. Am I missing any other good ones or other places to pick up melting salt?

Given the huge numbers we’ve been hearing what other supplies will you stock up on besides beer and milk?
