CONCORD - When the temperatures drop some places are very busy dealing with the cold.
Plumbers are on the lookout for frozen pipes and hardware stores are busy with customers who want ice scrapers and shovels.
Another popular item is salt rock for driveways and sidewalks but what people may not know is salt won't work as well when the temperature is below 20 degrees. In those cases people are urged to use calcium chloride because it does a better job melting ice.
